This is one of those things that just breaks you heart. I know that the Saudi Government is working on preserving their history and artifacts and is restoring many things. They are doing a great job on that and as a result I believe this will get better but to drive around and see so much trash just pilled in the desert is sad. My kids said on one of our most recent drives "Saudi really isn't very nice. There is too much trash." That statement made me sad because they have some beautiful things to see and I believe they will get the trash situation under control in the future but at the moment it is just nasty.
