-Steve had to put on pants to get on the flight!, good thing he had those zip up shorts/pants conversion handy
-this is the closest airport to Mecca so people on our flight were making the pilgrimage, men were cleansed and wearing what looked like towels, very interesting
-9 hr layover and we did not leave the airport so no real issue with the marriage name thing
-I heard that a plane full of women from Nigeria flew in to fulfill probably the most important pillar of Islam and were denied entry because they didn't have male escorts, I wonder how that got sorted?
-since we had such a long layover, the airlines provided us meal vouchers to use in the airport, unheard of in America as it was a schedule we purchased, food is the way to my favor
-finally got into the Petra book and relived her journey, wow, people amaze me
-nice airport
