Having seen what we normally see on Sundays at Kotaraya-Sinar Kota, I was actually part of the procession yesterday. A complete flip-side of the orderly and classy Riyadh that we'd been witnessing so far.
Batha (pronouced Bat-Ha) is the bazaar part of old Riyadh (in the south of the city) in which migrant workers, mostly Filipinos, Indians and Bangladeshis get together and shop. Yesterday was a bit special because 4 Malaysians were in the fray.
Bought myself a pair of NB runners which I quickly put to test as we got home. After stuffing my face with all those fries and soft drinks in the past two weeks, it was really nice to have a cardio work-out. But dehydration could be an issue, I must have drunk more than a litre of water to replenish.
And so there is a realistic part to Riyadh after all.....
