A feast for the eyes

"Day by day like this, you don't give importance to your surroundings ... until you get to Al Ula. Here, you can sense how exotic the Arab country can be."

No matter how attractive they are and how beautiful they are, the airport terminals that we see every day in Saudi Arabia are still that, airports. And the path that separates them from one bivouac to another is usually short and lacks landscapes to observe, because to avoid long bus journeys the camps are set up as close as possible to them. Thus, the majority is still a wasteland in which everything is organized in the same way, in the middle of the desert it is okay, but a wasteland at the end of the day. Except for Sakaka, the one from the marathon stage that was on a half-done college campus, all the others are like that.

Earth everywhere and little feast for the eyes, maybe better this way to focus on what happens inside their fences, on the competition, which is what matters. Day by day like this you don't give importance to your surroundings ... until you get to Al Ula. Here, at last, one can sense how exotic the Arab country can be. This northern city is surrounded by mountains, not very big but very picturesque, and the bivouac is among a few that create a backdrop worthy of admiration. A place that really lends itself to taking out the camera to immortalize it, the only one so far where you feel the privilege of being able to be. A feast for the eyes.
