Our oasis in the desert-Qasar al Sarab

"I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” – Susan Sontag

We have been in the desert now for 2 days and it is a real battle getting used to the heat. Today it was fiery hot again (45 degrees Celsius which = 113 degrees). But that is why I am grateful for my oasis in the desert-the Qasar al Sarab!  This has been my home in the desert and will be for one more night as tomorrow I make the long 300 kilometer trip back to Dubai (it is so hot in the desert that on the drive here my back got sunburned and I was in an SUV and had an undershirt and a shirt over it!) The first thing I will miss about the desert is the absolute tranquility where you do nothing but think and reflect on your life and life in general (something that we have little time to do in our busy lives back home in the USA or even in a busy place such as Dubai. The second thing I will miss about the desert is the Qasar al Sarab-my oasis in the desert. If ever I have to be in the desert, this is the place that I want to be. Enjoy the pictures of my desert home.
