Video: Saudi family and the sliding blanket
A Saudi man holidaying with his family in the heart of the Gulf Kingdom’s desert confirmed the saying that “necessity is the mother of all inventions”.
In the absence of any modern entertainment tool in the arid desert, the man simply spread a blanket on the sand, tied it to the rear of his four-wheel car and let his wife and children sit on the blanket before he started driving.
A YouTube film published in local newspapers showed the family appeared to be enjoying the ride and the man seemed happy that he had at least done something to give a touch of joy to their desert safari.
