Re: Saudi Arabia
Mind to elaborate?

The desert scenery is similar to Arizona and the like, the streets are super wide like in America, everybody drives, big percentage of the cars are American cars, in general, they love American brands and there are tons of American chain food places all over. combining all these together, when I drove around I felt like it was the most similar country to America I've ever been to besides Canada (I've been to 70+). Obviously there are differences to mentality, style, burkhas and Alla akhbar ;) etc but these are striking and very external

On another note some very interesting stuff was the Mechitza they have in the food places... I went to two Starbucks one was a full wall completely separated one was like an open orthodox mechitza  :P

There's also the five prayers a day when all stores close for like a half an hour... I went to Starbucks and was about to order when suddenly the guy tells me sorry we're closed now "huh??" "we have brayer" it took me a minute and a few repeats to realize that he meant prayer lol

Re: Paris Master Thread It's very cool and funny reading everyone's perspectives on arabic drivers and city driving lol

I think the bottom line is that it depends on the type of person you are and what driving experience you have. I personally don't understand what's wrong with Paris Uber drivers, took it several times and never had any issue they were all very nice and better service then NYC.

But personally I also think that if you have city driving experience and comfortable driving manual or renting automatic, it might make sense to rent a car, especially with kids. Definitely not like driving in midtown Manhattan for example. One advice is that you might want to rent a smaller car over a big minivan or 7p SUV, it will give you an easier time navigating the streets and parking lots. I know for myself that when I have a car I am much more inclined to go out and visit more places. but if you come from middle America and wouldn't drive in Brooklyn then definitely do not rent a car. there's plenty of other ways to get around such as bikes, scooters, bus, subway, trains, trams, Ubers and other taxi apps

Re: Flying with infant
I am planning a trip for August to Europe and am taking along my baby who will then be 21 months old. My question is should I rather book 2 business class seats and have her share with me or DW, or should I book economy tickets and buy an extra seat for her? Its a long haul flight and we have never yet taken her on anything farther than Florida.

When we flew TLV-JFK we booked one seat in economy and one business and we switched off a couple of times. baby got his seat and we were able to get some sleep as well. on a 12+ hour flight it was the best option for us.
