Also, JJ think it's way too long and should be in more parts. I cringe at 40 part TRs though.
What do you guys think?

״Instead the security guard started chatting away with me in Arabic and seemed shocked that I wasn’t an “Arabi.” The same scene repeated itself a few times in the UAE. I’m pretty white, but I guess with a baseball cap and my beard I can pass as a Muslim?״

What makes you think that there's a shortage of "white" Arabic speakers?

Time to brush up on your Arabic, that way you would be able to clearly read where that 444 license plate is from, as it says it in large letters.

On another note, I think you should be careful when you write things like "As Islam is a monotheistic religion, Jews are allowed to visit a Mosque." You should qualify such a statement with something like "I checked with my LOR, who told me..."   and maybe add a disclaimer that anyone should follow their own LOR.

I'm going to take a moment to ask that everyone please not start a halachic debate here, with regards to Jews entering mosques. Thank you!

I agree with you 100% which is why I think the discussion should be deflected upfront with proper language saying that Halachic ruling or discussion isn't part of DDMS.

Oh, I have no problem with the discussion, as a matter of fact, I think it's a great idea, just not of interest to me. I was just asking that it happen elsewhere

Next up: Forumla Rossa. This takes the concept of Six Flags’ Kingda Ka and Cedar Point’s Top-Thrill Dragster to the next level. Formula Rossa shatters the roller coaster record books by flying at 150MPH. It takes less than 5 seconds to get there.

After 45 minutes of gawking at one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve seen in life, we drove back to the Fairmont. I called them and asked them to warm up our frozen meals for an hour in the oven.

Time to brush up on your Arabic, that way you would be able to clearly read where that 444 license plate is from, as it says it in large letters.
Interestingly, the name is even vocalized with a vowel on the license plate. Probably in order to make a distinction from Amman, which is spelled the same way, but for vowels (one having the equivalent of a shuruk on the Ayin, and the other having the equivalent of a Dagesh Chazak on the Mem).

I would put in a disclaimer that at times Saaver awards are difficult to find when searching for a direct flight.
