Be careful when you start a business. In Saudi Arabia there is a different culture from the U.S. There are many aspects to the culture you have to know. One of the biggest parts of this culture is a religion, another is that the value of manners is very high, and still another is that the weather is very harsh.
First, the big part of the culture of Saudi Arabia comes from religion. The religion of Saudi Arabia is Islamic. It creates many rules for behavior among people. The people believe that and they are interested in their religion. For example, they do not drink alcohol and they do not eat pork. The people in S.A do not like anyone who makes fun of Islam. For all these reasons, it is very important to get information about Islam before beginning any business.
Second, Saudi Arabia has many important manners. The value of manners is very high. People respect others throw manners. For example, when people meet older people they have to kiss the head of this old person. In addition, the people in Saudi Arabia use their right hand when they eat, great and give presents. They do not use their left hand because that is shameful. Manners are other things you have to know before you starting your business in Saudi Arabia.
Third, the weather in Saudi Arabia is very harsh because it is very hot and dry in the summer. The temperature reaches 122 F. People wear lightweight white clothes. People every where use air conditioner in homes, restaurant and cars. People drink a lot of water at least 2 litters a day to be healthy.

When I was nine years old I had an accident in my neighbor’s car. This event took place when the neighbor’s children and I decided to go on a picnic. After we finished, we started to go home, and then the tire busted. Which caused the car to go off the road and roll seven times. At that time, people were stopping to see the accident, which caused crowd. People yelled for an ambulance, and was being hysterical. The ambulance arrived an hour later, and they took my friends and I to the hospital! When I was in the hospital the doctor put forty stitches in my head and called my father. When my father arrived, he looked upon me and he thought I was dead.
