Went out with a mate and a couple of nurses from a local hospital and went to the wrong party. The place got raided and 90 odd people including Brits, Dutch, Germans, all sorts were arrested at gunpoint (never trust a Saudi with a gun) and loaded onto buses. We were all questioned then straight to jail. (do not pass GO etc) Charged with "being in the presence of alcohol and women to whom we were not related."

To cut a long story short, after a couple of weeks, the local Prince came back from his holidays (bless 'im), and signed our release to the custody of our respective companies till we could be flown out of the country. Couple of weeks at the beach compound (we worked for Lockheed then) and we were on our way.

Nasty places them jails. They ought to do a few prisoner exchange jobs with our lot.

Hey Ho....
