We had the great fortune of being invited by Hamad Al Ghanem to his winter camp site near Al Ain (Remah). We spent a lovely afternoon and evening walking around the protected wilderness with Hamad, his friends, and two of his Salukis, Sawad and La’bah.

Hamad’s generosity has no limits. The feast of Biryani was followed by an evening of star-gazing, tea with milk and ginger, and traditional bread cooked over a fire by Hamad’s cousin who happened to be passing by. It was just perfect. And we didn’t get any scorpion bites.
