    A nice German lady just helped me translate the T-mobile airport log in page so I could get online for a bit before I go into Jeddah.

    Germans are way nicer than I thought they would be(since I only speak english).

    747 Business class rocks socks. I felt like a king, first time I've been in anything but economy.

    Miss you douches. :sadwavey:

    Germans are super nice, way cooler than the French. They love it if you try to speak German even if you get it wrong, they just appreciate the thought.

    Things I saw on the road in the 15 min I was on them.

    2 Lambos(Both Muci's). A GT40, 3 Roll's, more Mercedes than I can count.

    2 wrecks happened, no one stopped.

    I'm seriously going to video tape tomorrow when I'm out on the road to show you I'm not exaggerating. Fender benders are just part of driving here. Its nuts.

    I'm going to the car dealership tomorrow with my uncle, hes picking up a new one. They have lots of exotic cars there too.

    I feel like I'm closer to chechen now.

    BMW X5.

    His boss told him he didn't drive a nice enough car.

    My uncle thought he was kidding. His boss made him an apointment at the BMW place. :rofl:

    He drives a 1997 Mitsubishi Pajro over here. Hes one of those people that has money because they don't spend it.

    There is a big womens movement going on here, lots of girls my age had their face uncovered.

    They are very pretty.

    Amazing eyes.

    I saw no mustaches.

    I was reverse racismed and it creeped me out.

    In the Saudi social hierarchy its Saudis, westerners, and then low level immigrants(lebonese, philipeno, etc...).

    I got pulled to the front of the line because I was white.

    I felt bad. :hs:

    its 5am here(I think, my watch is down stairs and my computer is still on MD time).

    My internal clock is broken.

    Business class makes all the difference in the world on long trips.

    I'm stoked about the free internet here, someone has an unsecured wireless network i can get on and I even remembered my power converters.

    I'll get pictures today, though I can't get any of actual people.

    A mall just opened here thats bigger than the Mall of America(eat that Jeff). Its nuts. You can buy womens clothes(and landerie is a BIG deal here) but the women just wear it under their robes.

    Jeddah is super liberal compared to the rest of Jeddah, lots of women are uncovered. But they still wear the robes. Some of them wear deceration on the sleeves(jewels, etc...).

    There are lots of pools in the Western Compound(I say western, but its basicly non muslim. lots of asians too). There is 1 pool for every 6 houses. I'm about to go swim i think while its deserted out side.

    I got to the mall last night around 11. Kids were EVERYWHERE. People don't shop here until around midnight, its crazy. Its to hot during the day to go out.

    I thought it was like 7pm in the mall with all the people there.

    Being able to sleep on the plane really helped get over the jet lag. I'm still a bit off but not to bad.

    Pictures to come later today.

    Its not just they hold hands, its the head on the shoulder, etc...

    Very weird.

    I like this place though, not near as bad as I thought.
