Not literally but certainly there were clouds in the Dubai skies today and reports of rainfall in some parts of the Emirate - the first rain since last Winter. P and L are in town - old friends from HK days who are taking a break before P starts a new job in London having spent the last 5 years in Zurick. We used to play tennis together on a Saturday morning and watch footy in Main Street of an evening. We also used to team up for the quiz at the Pickled Pelican in Stanley which we regularly used to win (there were usually only 3 or 4 other teams .......).
We tried to revive the glory days at the Dhow & Anchor quiz on Tuesday night (where by coincidence P and L were staying) with assistance from Dad and E. Unfortunately the old magic was in short supply (or perhaps the questions were more difficult). In any event, we did not cover ourselves in glory although given that it was held outdoors at least it did not rain. Hopefully we will also avoid rain tomorrow when we have invited P and L to a BBQ after a trip with them to a Wild Wadi waterpark.
