A note to Araby

To the very kind person who has been leaving comments throughout The Lighthouse ... in Arabic:

Thank you. I'm so glad you're spending time here, and it's so good of you to take the time to share your thoughts. I can't help but think, though, that as you've at least seen (if not actually read) eight or so posts here, you must have realized that I don't write in Arabic, but am, in fact, English (Dutchlish at a stretch). I've run your comments through Google translate but still can't make sense of it, so I wonder if you might be better off spending your time in another way?

Again, thank you. I wish you well... and somewhere else.


  1. I'm starting to get the Arabic comments, too. Something about luggage, but I'm not really sure what the gist is. Maybe they'll get tired and move on.

    1. Yes! Mine seem to be about luggage as well! I'm sure it's useful information but, well, it's in Arabic.
