Caught this ...

Al Hufuf, also Hofuf, city in eastern Saudi Arabia, in Ash Sharqiyah (Al Hasa) Province, situated in the largest oasis in the country. A walled city and a trade center, Al Hufuf is connected by rail and road with Riyadh and Ad Dammam. Manufactures include cloth, copper and brass products, and swords and daggers. The oasis, watered by many springs, grows dates, fruit, rice, wheat, and barley. The 'Osmanýya oil field is nearby and to the southwest. Originally called Al Hasa, the city was headquarters of the 10th-century Qarmatian Muslim sect.

    The racist remarks from narrow-minded thoughtless persons shouldn't deter you to visit the beautiful Norway. Visiting is ok, but if you stay here, well, some ppl will make sure that u r not welcome.

    Honestly I didn't know anything about this Hasa but by looking at those photos, I can roughly tell it is an interesting place. How about transportation tips? Anyway, good work.
