#1 First, and important. Take your place in your assigned seat on the aircraft, get conformable for the long flight and empty your bowels and bladder completely.

"Buh-bye, happy hajj!"
Bleat the ground crew, dislodging

#3 the Kaaba - a black silk-clad stone structure

"That's Ms. Williams to you!"

was built by the Prophet Abraham

#4 the Saudis actually have an operational train going between Mecca and Medina

about 280 miles, under ideal conditions the trip will take a bit over 2 hours, although I doubt it will go at top speed during the summer

cost of the job was about $10B
