More Adventures With Edna


Not an Edna adventure, but a February adventure - I went to Moscow. Here is a frozen boat on a frozen river.


Auspicious fast car sighting the morning of our Hatta "safari."


We hoped to see camels on our road trip. We were not disappointed.




Lush farm. I don't think people imagine the UAE looks like this.


We loved this fuzzy baby goat.


Small oasis, Hatta, Dubai emirate




Me, on a weird rock.

This entry is getting long, so I'll continue it tomorrow - more Hatta, and more adventures with Edna. Goodnight!

Hatta, then Mahmovies!

"Sita Sings The Blues" at Mahmovies!


After the film, we were lucky to see a performance by some of Dubai's labour camps' best singers.


Here's us! You can see the press swarming the singers in the background.

Here are some links about the event:
