"Ancient Oasis" Al Qatif by Bashir-1

Al Qatif Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 50 photos

There are a lot of more pics of huge farms with dense palms. This is where we were all surrounded by these palms farms. Size 4

in the 1940's ... simple life

Overview top look but not clear because it is old black & white.
