Important Notice

It is not my intention to denigrate Saudi Arabia or its people. It’s like everywhere else, there is good and there is bad. I would rather focus on the unusual and the humourous. Offence is not intended.

“The country is not perfect. The media cannot be trusted, mistreatment of religious minorities is common and there are some that live in fear.” You can decide for yourself whether that statement is about Saudi Arabia, the UK, or any country for that matter.

To quote the Joker, “Why can’t we all just get along?”

That is all I will say about either subject.

Bad Terry

Speaking of Danube supermarket, its an unusual supermarket when it comes to prices. Some items there are bargains (good Terry) whilst some are outrageous (bad Terry).
35 SAR (USD 9) for one cucumber?! Is it made out of emeralds? Can you smoke it? What's the deal? I saw some Saudis buying them and I wondered whether I was surrounded by Princes and Princesses doing their supermarket shopping. Who else would pay that much for one cucumber?! We were at Euromarche later the same day and you could buy 8 chicken wings for 2.5 SAR. That's US 8 cents per wing. So for the price of 1 Danube cucumber you could have 112 Euromarche chicken wings.
Frankly, that sort of price is an affront to the chicken. Imagine dying and having your arms sold for only 16c.
Talk about adding insult to injury.

I never heard of this supermarket in Riyadh!

if you want a cheap and freash vigitales, with exaotic buying and negotiating experiance, you should go to "Otaygah". The Riyadh's largest local farmers market. ((Tip: don't forget your camera!))

I shop in Danube supermarket in Jeddah.. in all big supermarkets you will find a part of the vegetable section that is Very expensive because it's would be the part that displays imported American products..(i usually skip that part unless i'm looking for something specific unavailable otherwise) but you will find most these product also available in a reasonable price (locally grown or imported from counties other than the US)
Also, are you sure that the price was per cucumber?? usually supermarkets in Saudi Arabia display the price per Kilo.

In fact other than not being part of the family of original replica watches in uk , your replica Breitling is the same in all other categories. The Breitling Watch Company was established in 1884 in the Jura Mountains of Switzerland. The Breitling Chronomat Evolution is one of their newest watches and epitomizes its accuracy in timekeeping.
