The king is in

The title is a private joke in our family. In Jeddah, where we used to live for a short while, is King Fahd’s fountain – the tallest fountain in the world, spraying salt water around 300 metres into the air. It could be seen from most places in Jeddah but it wasn’t always switched on. The joke was – at least amongst expats – that it was on whenever the king was in his Jeddah residence. Hence, whenever we see a fountain, we proclaim: The king is in!
