Around the World in 80 Days
Day 12: 6 October
A good chat with Nick from the embassy who used to be in Jordan. We talk about Middle Eastern affairs. Some foresee that Israel will cease to exist in 25 or 30 years because there are so many Arabs living within her borders and reproducing at a rate 50 per cent faster than the Israelis. In 5 years or so, half the population of Israel will be Arab. We walk back together and it's very hot and sticky. Still no word on whether I can move on tomorrow.
