Swastika rider November 26, 2006Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, Sweden.
Managed to take a pic inside Rashid Mall on Friday just before opening. I know that you are allowed to photograph things here here in the kingdom as long as you don’t take pics of people that don’t want to be included but I still feel a little uneasy about it. People are little uptight about cameras from what I have heard. I will still continue taking pictures though.
Inside Rashid Mall
And duh, outside Rashid Mall.
I am really wondering who is the owner of this bike. Is it a hindu, buddhist or what (since the swaztika is a sacred symbol in these religions)? Or is it someone who is just plainly in love with the ideas of the Nazis? I know this symbol is common in some Asian countries due to their religions but in Europe where I am from, it is mainly associated with Hitler and his men. I am pretty sure you would get arrested for having this on your bike in Sweden (seeeee we too are open minded and tolerant!)…. unless someone actually breaks your bike first.
