April 1 - 21 2003
In Amman Jordan we did have some time to get out. My friend Frank,
he is the engineer for the ABC network, Jon and I went to Planet Hollywood
Amman. On the outside it looked like any other Amman building but on
the inside it looked like any other Planet Hollywood. Frank also brought
his traveling mascot Howard. So Howard and Jack shared a glass of fresh
orange juice. Next is some stuff I found inside the Planet. This
is stuff from the movie Real Genius
starring Val Kilmer. I really
liked this movie when I was in school. Like any kid after we visited
a real restaurant the kid wanted to go to Mc Donald's. Mickey D's is
across the street from Planet Hollywood.
Here jeff models the chain of pull tabs assembled in just 3 weeks. They
mostly came off the cans of Coke like the one I am holding. You can
tell it is a bit smaller and is about the size of a Red Bull can here. It
holds 250 ml of refreshing goodness. Yes these are the old fashion
pull tabs on the top. The chain I have here is about 6 feet long.
Jack got out for a night or 2 and found the one bar in Amman that serves
American Budweiser. This bar is called Nai and is supposed to be rocking.
Both times we were there were off nights. All the drinking made
the cactus a bit heady and he needed a smoke. The next day we went
shopping for Hookah pipes. Well he found one he liked and Jeff now
has a nice one in the house.
