Clean and friendly staff, room was clean, but toilet and shower were both not working very well. No free Internet in the rooms, sporadic Internet in the lobby...beware of Camel rides in the evening, by the pool.

It makes me thankful for what we do know and the artifacts that we're lucky enough to be able ...

It's 1pm now, and the sun through haze bleaches the sparse desert landscape yellow as the pause for prayers bleaches out the sharpness of the day's noise and movement. My mind jostles with the startling serenity of this artificial time-stop and the image of an interval ice-cream vender from the days of 'the pictures' wandering between the deserted trucks in his red velvet ...
