As we were driving in from the airport into the heart of Riyadh, I saw a beautiful building with a hole in it called the “Kingdom Centre,” built by the well-known global investor Prince Alwaleed.
I left my hotel to look for it and to get a picture for all of you — but I couldn’t find it.
It turns out, much to my embarrassment, that we were staying in the building. I was just walking around it I guess and didn’t get enough perspective to see it above me.
More later — I have been here only for a few hours and it has been a fascinating, eye-opening trip already.
