Jazan & AlBahah trip with my brother

So Last year in order to finish my Street Life in Saudi Arabia project I had to go to a trip to Jazan Region which is located in the south-west of Saudi Arabia, one of my brothers decided to come along in this road trip which took us almost 18 hours from Dammam to Jazan city (with a couple of stops to rest & eat) we were discovering some sightseeing aside from the places I went to photograph for my project Some of the sightseeing were AlFaifa mountains & Farasn Island in Jazan Region, AlSoudah mountain in Asir Region and an ancient village in AlBahah in our way back, the photos will be posted in chronological order.

Extracting Oil the old way from Jazan

When I was on the road from Jazan to Abha I saw in the sideways camels circling around blindfolded with men guiding them. So I stopped my car and it turns out that they are extracting  oil by grinding it, the camel circle around pulling the wooden lever hooked to him plus a big rock in his back so he moves slowly,  all that attached to a pole of wood which is crafted especially for this task and this pole moves as the camels circle in a big wooden pot also especially crafted for this, it turns slowly for hours and grind the seeds into oil called (Smsm Oil) used either for food or healthy choices for woman which is very common in the Southern Region. Another amazing thing that the camel can move & stop by a sound that the owner make which something impressive!
