- Wyndham apologizes after Doha hotel says same sex couples not welcome (HT: @crucker) Conservative Gulf states are an enigma, partially-Westernized while hanging onto (and at times pandering to) a conservative Islamic sensibility. There’s actually a vibrant gay scene in Qatar. Much happens unimpeded, until it doesn’t, which isn’t a great position to be in. And calling hotels asking permission (as journalists did here) is different than just doing.
- Air quality on a plane.
Good N of 1 experiment on air quality during plane travel. General take away: poorest quality on boarding and deplaning, mid flight improves markedly.
