Never thought this would happen, but the weather has caused our camping trip to be postponed. The forecast has been threatening rain for the last few days, particularly moving down from Saudi Arabia, which is the direction we were going to head in. Yesterday they added in the threat of sandstorms as well. We awoke this morning to dark skies and wind, so decided it wasn't worth the three hour trek only to end up sheltering in our tents from rain and sand. Thankfully most of us can make it next weekend, so there isn't too long to wait.
All is not lost, in an hour we are off to an "Hawaiin" party at the villa of one of the families that was meant to have been going. I'm dreading seeing the Hawaiin shirt that Jo has bought me specially! Mind you I'm looking forward to seeing her in her grass skirt and coconuts!
