In the Al Ain Oasis
To the accompaniment to the sweet sounds of birds singing, in the coolness of a late afternoon in mid-November in the beautiful and very green Al Ain Oasis. Yesterday afternoon, in between a heavy storm in Oman the day before and a quiet grey afternoon in Amsterdam today.

Back in Mardin - looking across the Mespotamian plain towards Syria
Back in Mardin - looking across the Mespotamian plain towards Syria, a photo by CharlesFred on Flickr.
Repeating one of my favourite photos from our trip here in 2006. But now the situation across the border has become so much worse, with thousands of foreign jihadist fighters, paid by Saudi Arabia and Qatar causing havoc to the good people of Syria.
