有闻而录

  There is no consonant corresponding to the sound of the English ‘p’ in Arabic, so it was replaced by the sound ‘b’.
 
—–a joke going around in London about an Arab motorist who asks an Englishman,"Where can I ‘bark’, sir?" The Englishman replies, "This is a free country. You can ‘bark’ wherever you like."
 
——One evening he encountered a troupe of female performers in Bear Street. Their faces were painted white and they wore theatrical costumes. They undressed in Bear Street to get changed. It was as if mannequins were changing their clothes in front of the passers-by. Kasim liked to watch street theatre. It reinforced his idea of the essentially theatrical nature of London.
 
—-During his induction as his new college, Sanjay’s tutor, Mr. Webster, told him that london was an international dustbin where you meet riff-raff from all over the world.
