Cremation in England on 11 March. Shipping mortal remains from KSA to the Uk is a complex matter - and non-Muslims may not be buried on Saudi soil.

Well, scot, dead body of an expatriate executed in the Magic Kingdom was/is the exception of the above law.

I think the law of non-muslim not to be burried in the Magic Kingdom has been changed after 2012.
Saudi Arabia to allow burial of non-Muslims

If you do not want to die as an expat in the Magic Kingdom, then this is the time to start packing up and leave.

It seems in the Magic Kingdom you have to live every day with eternity in your mind! Laughing

Zara461 seems to be the reincarnation of a popular former poster. Has 007 become 461?

461 divided by 007 - 0065.85. Very suspicious! Laughing
