With Saudi, there's no reason to assume anything will happen to you if you obey the law.

I agree with this. I think Saudi is a disgrace in terms of human rights, sharia etc etc... But I respect that that is the law of the land.

If I were single, I could easily put up with it for a year or two for £50,000 a contract. Gets me a deposit back home for a decent place and a decent travel fund. Ultimately, I would never put someone I love through that just for money.

Out of interest Aristocrat, how much is the Hajj? You said it cost an arm and a leg.
Haven't you got some pictures of birds to be jacking off to, son?

Varies, but from what I've been told, between $5000 to $8000 per person. Up to 20k if you want to have better accommodations and more privacy. My wife and I will almost certainly teach in Saudi for a year, simply to go on Hajj for next to nothing.

The problem is that the city can only hold so many pilgrims each year and there are plenty of rich, connected, selfish folks going multiple times, thus robbing others of the chance and the Saudi government erecting luxury hotels for super rich pilgrims, where they could've used the real-estate for affordable accommodation that would house 20X as many people.

School looks great, but the beheadings and the risk my wife will be kidnapped/slapped with a shoe goes in the negative column unfortunately.
Capital punishment: doesnít happen as much as it used to. Itís only for serious crimes.

Kidnapping: that happened a bit immediately after 9/11, but isnít an issue these days.

Shoe slapping: thatís assault. It would be prosecuted as such.

That is not what I have heard form folks that worked there, recently. 

A lot has changed in the past 3-4 years.

It does depend heavily on your passport and your social class.

European and North American professionals have zero issues.

This sounds like a good bargain, but I would worry about my freedom of movement. I am not a Muslim, I don't eat pork, I don't drink, and I don't worship idols. But I am also worried about my freedom of worship. If possible I would have to live in a compound where I would be more free. But that confinement... still not a good sign for freedom of movement.

I wanna throw my shoe at you for your formatting.

Forever, please answer my question. Why do you write your posts in that format? What word application are you writing it in? Where are you copy and pasting from? Why can't you write in this 'post reply' box... Please. I like my shoes, I don't want to throw them. It's hard to buy my size in Korea and post is delayed these days.



I really need to find a way to block you because you are being a goddamned asshole.
