Did you know that the Bur al-Arab hotel spent millions to build a flyover 400 yards long at the local airport? The only reason for doing so was to avoid a traffic light. That's right, in order to achieve its '7-star' status, they had to ensure that there were no traffic lights between the airport and the hotel. Ridiculous.
The word POSH actually comes from the acronym P.O.S.H. "Well-to-do travelers sailing between England and India requested staterooms on the shady side of the ship which was "Port Outboard, Starboard Home". Shortened by the ship's purser to P.O.S.H."
I love British writing and commentary, so educational too. Before I end this entry, I leave you with two treats for your ears. First up is Hasidic Reggae (credit: Jake), and the second, an a cappella version of our favorite 8-bit tunes. I got goosebumps when they hit the Super Mario underground tunes and the Zelda tunes. Oh and I loved how he booted up the game. Cartridges were terrible, instead of blowing onto every game I wanted to play, I used to stack them into the vents of the air conditioner.
