That’s a very misleading headline. Inviting fans from each association to the opening ceremony and getting them to sing a chant for a few seconds representing their country as part of the ceremony seems pretty reasonable to me.
5 across= riming?

I always loved travel.

I was in West Berlin, working, in 1970/1971.

Had my appendix out in Iran, four years later.

:hehe::hehe:

All too long ago.

I did have a cyst removed from my bollocks. That was in an Iranian hospital as well. But that was in 1997.
Got dysentery in Egypt. Had to have my sphincter operated on and sewn back up.
That was not very pleasant.

:hehe:

what the hell were you up to out there? :hehe:
I was on my fifth trip to Egypt and got complacent. Previously I only ever eat cooked food, on that trip I went for the salad and completely forgot about the warnings not to.

Result.

Locked in my hotel bedroom for four days, shitting and spewing up all over the place.

Had a couple of similar experiences. I thought I was going to die in Northern Thailand after three solid days stuck in my room puking and shitting myself inside out. fever, uncontrollable shaking, couldn’t get the energy to leave the room until my then girlfriend came back from a trek and got me some chocolate and pop. Facking grim it was.

Qatar is very, very, conservative, even compared to places like Abu Dhabi or Sharjah.
They have obviously hired an outside PR company, to come up with a range of proposals which will dampen down overt protesting.
It's a full on dictatorship, in which the previous Emir was kicked out by his own son.
I don't think for one minute that they are concerned about protestors, what would really bother the regime, is the residual impact that protesting would have on their own people.

Been there have you :hehe:

It's the Netherlands mate.
Not Holland

Holland very much still exists, as they are regions, whose major centres are Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague, aka The Hollands. (For those of a curious mind, it evolved from 'Houtland' Dutch for woodland)

The Netherlands itself, also includes some Caribbean islands. Whilst the plant life there may appeal to @The Colonel , some of his posts suggests he'd prefer the cooler climes of Holland

(Again for those of curious minds, Netherlands comes from the Roman for low-lying lands, or what we've anglicised into the nether regions - I guess that still works in Dutch if adverse to a trim)

Mousey, full blown argument with my father in law one Xmas over a trivial pursuit football question, my answer was Holland , cos the card said the Netherlands he wouldn't give it to me

So your girlfriend left you to shit yourself to death whilst venturing on a " trek" for 3 days:sherlock:
