No like this Qatar
Clearly scrawled straight from the heart, this choice piece of graffiti must have a sad story behind it. One wonders what poor disaffected soul could have been frustrated enough with his host country (for one assumes he is not a local) to throw caution to the winds and vent his frustration on a defenseless concrete wall. A grey concrete wall in a hot, dusty city. A hot dusty city that doesn't allow its immigrant workers into its shopping malls, or even to walk on the Corniche. I can't understand it at all...
I always used to smile flying out of Dhahran International Airport. Not, you understand, because I was leaving ze Kingdom, but because some homesick wag had abused his role as a filler-in of holes in the runway with bitumen to write SRI LANKA in letters 6 feet high across the tarmac.ReplyDelete
It just tickled me...
