When I was in Egypt, we drove to Alexandria for a meeting.  My host was kind enough to drive me through the town and on the corniche. The meeting was near the harbour and I really didn’t want to be so close and not see this old city.

A short hop to Dubai for a day.  I didn’t bring my camera this time, so it’s another old photo I’m afraid.  You can tell from the columns on the left bank of the road.  These are now the supports for the metro track, which is almost complete including stations.  The photo above was taken in February 2008.

Dubai is still quiet – but the queue for the taxis at the airport was unbelievably long.

I’m in Dubai without my camera… I miss it!

This is my view from the hotel which I captured during my February visit. I’m staying at the same room again.

I only managed to spend 24 hours in what can only be described as the crazy city. It fealt like all I did was zoom around to try to fit in as much as possible. The postcard photo chosen is therefore very appropriate. I was amazed how little the horn was used by these people. The roads were still noisy – but it was only the more tolerable (and necessary) engine noise.

The smiles were many and genuine. People here are very friendly. I will come back one day. Inshallah.

It is so impressive how much the Thai people can fit on a motorbike. I saw a family of 5 on one the other day here in Phuket. The photo is of a man who’s converted his into a delivery truck.

This is a very interesting place with many smiling faces. I’m here on business staying at Le Meridien Phuket. What a place! It’s a shame I only have one afternoon free.

It’s Liberation Day!

I was hoping to take a photo to commemorate this day but instead (being lazy) I decided to photoshop an older photograph to make the Kuwait flag with the traffic colours.

Happy Independence & Liberation. May god always bless Kuwait and everyone in it.
