March Travel Tips

1) Before peeing in Zambia, arm yourself with a nail clipper.

2) Or a pet spider.

3) During a visit to Iraq, beware of falling bullets.

Worth quoting:

Due to a quaint national habit of firing rounds into the air to celebrate or beat boredom -- Iraqis have a special problem: falling bullets."

"Among Arabs, we believe that if a person owns a gun nobody will harm him," explained a gun shop owner. "Looters will stay away, troublemakers will stay away."
But not bullets, apparently.
