When I Was Arrested in Saudi Arabia
Hilal Isler


Funny, I just published the first installment of my “The Backpack Chronicles” today. It was about my time in Saudi. I lived in Al-Khobar so not as strict as Riyadh. Still, the authorities, “Mutawa”, can be very tough, especially on women. I hear that things are changing in Saudi but please be careful as they are far from where you want them to be. There is nothing to look forward to in a Saudi prison. Thank you for writing. It took courage.
