105 cybercaffs in one street!

Wow, is that some kind of record?

Jordan is bidding for a place in the Guinness Book of Records claiming it has the most Internet cafés in one street.

Shafic Rsheidat Street is less than half a mile long yet boasts an amazing 105 cybercafés on both sides of the route, according to a reprt by AFP.

In 1996, the street had just four Net cafés. Now, you can't move for them.

A spokesman for the Guinness Book of World Records couldn't believe it when we phoned up to check if this was legit.

He let out a long, tapering whistle, then said he'd have to go away and find out if anyone had applied.

Ten minutes later he called back to say that no application had been received but that he was "very interested in a record like this".

"We'd run it under the 'Highest Density of Internet Cafés in One Street' category," he said. Or something like that.

If anyone from Shafic Rsheidat Street in North Jordan would like to get in touch we'd only be too happy to pass on your details.

We'll keep you posted. ®
