Given that Dammam is basically Aramco country, and they can charge whatever they want to them and get away with it, its probably far too expensive to mail them from there or the Saudi Postal service will only give the company a bulk rate if you mail it from an agreed upon facility.

The same kind of thing exists in the West, if you're American have you ever wondered why Del Rio and Plano, Texas always seem to be where junk mail originates or goes to?
