I am in Cairo on a short business trip.  So far all I managed  is a late afternoon walk.  I thought the second day would give me some more time to catch up with the city – my last visit here was a few years ago – but I just learned that my second meeting will be in Alexandria…

I hope to be able to get a few shots of here and ‘zair’…

I’m back in Kuwait.  I was driving home from the airport when I noticed the temperature – something we take for granted here.  It’s hard to describe where forty-plus-degrees-celsius-heat comes from when the sun is nowhere to be seen! Look at my car’s thermometer after 8pm and more than an hour after sunset.

I saw it at 46 when driving near Messilah and then it dropped back to 44.  At almost 11pm it was still 40!

I need a holiday.

I was told you can’t love a woman like a sister, wife, daughter and girlfriend – all at the same time.  How wrong was I to believe that?

This is my contribution to the rescue package of the world’s economy.  Actually I’m leasing it – so it’s a rather small contribution.  I had the same car last year for a year’s contract and absolutely loved it.  It’s beautifully built and the purring of the engine brings senior citizens to tears, as they miss their youth.  Enough about last year.  This time round, I went for a two year lease. This allowed me to increase the engine size, upgrade to the turbo and get the four-wheel-drive version for the same monthly payments.  The engine no longer purrs, it growls as the car disappears into the horizon.

I have to remember to control my foot – thus ensuring the only camera to capture this beautiful lady, is my own…
