Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately the Saudi Arabian mirror site listed at
appears not to contain any FreeBSD material, but that page contains
both ftp and http links to sites where you can download useful FreeBSD

which gives reasonable download speeds to where you are, browse the
handbook and perhaps check the freebsd-questions at freebsd.org mailing
list for clarifications and installation advice.
