本書的副標:「字典國度奇幻之旅」,意思是,這個國家對於作者來說,原本就像是只存在於字典之中,夢幻而遙不可及。

阿拉伯菸茶khat:謹奉如下茶
Khat ( Catha edulis Forsk), pronounced "cot" and also known as qat, gat, tschat, and miraa, is a plant used for centuries in parts of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. There, chewing khat predates the use of coffee and is used in a similar social context. Its fresh leaves and tops are chewed or, less frequently, dried and consumed as tea, in order to achieve a state of euphoria and stimulation. Due to the availability of rapid, inexpensive air transportation, the drug has been reported in London, Rome, Amsterdam, Canada, and the United States. The public has become more aware of this exotic drug through media reports pertaining to the United Nations mission in Somalia, where khat use is endemic, and its role in the Persian Gulf. The khat plant is known by a variety of names, such as qat in Yemen; tschat in Ethiopia, and miraa in Kenya.

In 1980 the World Health Organization classified khat as a drug of abuse that can produce mild to moderate psychic dependence.--(From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia)
