the temperature than Saudi Arabia and night we got there it was a straight desert women aren't allowed to drive the women over there have to walk behind their husbands it is typical to see one man would like to try behind a bunch of kids and if you want women have to cover up no ankles then cover your face it was a time a country where we would drive and who get caught in the traffic Shannon and you smell something in the air and if somebody hanging as they can hang in there for three days in the public public square that was their judicial system if you get caught stealing your hand to stop the bus I was in Saudi Arabia and coming into the country now that my mom know that it was under the penalty of death is if you try to sneak in the Bible or any kind of Christian literature but
