I’ve just realized something. Arabic numbers are read from left to right. Words, however, are read from right to left. That’s effing weird and how is it that I‘ve only just realized it? And that it is the only thing I took out of reading a whole clause?

Does it have some root in the whole English numerals are actually Arabic thing? It makes sense though when seen against the tapestry of Arab weirdness, in all its myriad forms.

Off to Ras Shitan now! I’m going to try very hard to take a crap before I go. Blog you later.
