If Olaya Street Could Talk is the name of a recently published book written about Saudi Arabia.
This volume has important insights for anyone living on the Arabian Peninsula.
The author writes not only of Olaya Street, the main commercial road of Riyadh but of the entire Arabian Peninsula and how it filled him with awe.
His curiosity and the rise of a “strange attachment” to this foreign land led him to stay, to marry and to raise a family in that country.
People living in the KSA or any Arab land will learn much from the author about Arab culture and meeting the challenges of living in an expat bubble.
A review of this book can be found at Reviewing Books and Movies.
