in jeddah

we have moved. it was so hectic. packing, unpacking, saying goodbyes, throwing stuff u may not need ( i am a person who loves keeping everything. )... Now in jeddah, in a new home, new country, new lifestyle.
My first experience is not encouraging. During Ramadan, the stores open at 1 to 3:30, and then open at 9:30 p.m till 2 a.m. ( only the supermarkets open from 10 to 3, then 9:30 to 2).
So if you need to buy stuff from market ( I need plenty, i have just moved in), you cant go in one date and get it.
and since i have a baby, i cant go out at night, so i am limited to 2.30 hours a day.

and i cant drive, so you need to book the driver in advance.

God told us in the quraan that work is 3ibada ( worship) and that if we need to work, it has be done properly. so how do they think here?
