SAUDI ARABIA FROM ABOVE
Many people assume that the Saudi Kingdom abounds with luxury buildings and signs of wealth, but outside of the main cities, the country remains very rural. This old village with mud houses is located in the Asir province. These houses are called midmakh and they may have up to seven floors. The huge walls are the best way to keep temperatures cool during the summer. There are rooftop terraces that allow people to enjoy fresher air.
