Hi, My name is Renad Mumenh. I’m a student at Webster University Geneva. I am currently stuck in my home country – Saudi Arabia, so I decided to walk around my town Jeddah and visit the historical locations, where my ancestors lived.
The historic center of Jeddah, Al-Balad, which translates ” The Town,” was built in the 7th century. While the historic city walls of Al-Balad fell in the 19th century, it still holds its unique architecture and beauty to this day; people still live there.

“Each building has its own story to tell.”
”Buildings help us understand the world we used to live in.”
“Yesterday it was a history, tomorrow its a mystery.”
“Usually, I like to live in the moment. But right now, I’m enjoying the past.”
