I am a single woman traveling to Ethiopia soon but have a long (18 hour overnight) layover in Riyadh. I would like info from someone who has been through that airport about safety, food availability, can I bunk down overnight in a terminal? I would like to do this without leaving the airport to get a hotel, but want to know if that is a good idea? Is it necessary to wear an abaya or headscarf at the airport?
I have been offered a job in Riyadh as a PA Houser Manager to a high profile person (female) and I am very concerned about my personal safety as a female as I would be driven to work daily by someone who is unknown to me and how do I know that he could be trusted?
Also...is serious illness a problem amongst the expat community?
I also worry as I have allergies and I have been told that the air is grossly polluted...is this true?
No point in mentioning the other horrors as is is pointless but I will be going there as a single woman with no male to act as my 'Mahrah' (can't believe I am saying this as I am used to taking care of myself of course) but I know the culture is that way but I am hoping that life in the British compound would be like having an extended family.
Anyhow I would appreciate anyone's views on the subject!!

my daughter has just started working in riyadh and we would like to visit her. however, getting into riyadh appears to be problematic. Her husband has to have his passport, marriage certificate and other documents translated into Arabic and we cannot apply for visas unless my daughter "invites" us over. Is this true? Does it mean therefore that visitors are not encouraged? Appreciate advice / thank you.
