Saudi Arabia

piątek, 17 października 2014

Saudi Arabia is the largest Arab state in Western Asia by land area and the second-largest in the Arab world after Algeria. It is bordered by Jordan and Iraq to the north, Kuwait to the northeast, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates to the east, Oman to the southeast, and Yemen in the south. It is the only nation with both a Red Sea coast and a Persian Gulf coast.

Did you know that:
1. Saudi Arabia is the only place on earth where beheading, amputation of hands and limbs, and stoning are not illegal.
2. It is illegal in Saudi Arabia to practice any form of sorcery or magic. The Saudis have a police unit set up specifically for catching witches.
3. It is strictly forbidden to carry and drink alcoholic beverages in Saudi Arabia.
4. In Saudi Arabia, a liter of potable water is more expensive than a liter of oil.
5. Women are basically banned from working in Saudi Arabia. For decades, that meant women were served by men in lingerie shops, which was a bit awkward.
6. Diyya, commonly translated as “blood money,” is a system for criminals to compensate their victims’ families financially. Doing so allows the person that committed the crime to be let off from normal criminal justice. It’s a formalized way of buying one’s freedom.
