... So I finally managed to watch the ego movie, which literally made me "lol", luckily I think most other passengers were also enjoying the in flight movies so probably didn't notice.... Thou then I decided to watch anchorman2, at around midnight UK time, so my laughter may not have been so disguised during sleepy time!

On the way to Dubai, the bus I was on made several quick stops to pick up more people. On one stop we made, an argument broke out. I'm not sure how it got started, or what exactly it was about. I heard ...
