“The Saudi government is building a $1.8 billion monorail to ferry pilgrims among the holy sites of Mecca, Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah. Once complete, the Saudis estimate 53,000 buses will disappear from the city’s crowded roads, promising a safer, more comfortable pilgrimage.” – Keith Barry, Wired.com

WOHO! It’s true it’s been a while since my last visit to Mecca, but I truly think this is an awesome idea. Think of the pollution reduction this project will yield! I’m so happy we made it to Wired Magazine for something good 🙂
