Busy here this morning. I think I’m the first from our group to arrive- stopped on the right hand side as you leave the road under Sahara Amusement sign. See you soon!

Was a great drive, tks Tariq for leading us. Is someone familiar with the Sweihan area? I know it is in AUH but would be great to drive there since Al Badayer is getting very crowded during the winter months. Maybe we could organize a full day sometime in January?

Thanks Rafic.
You're absolutely right. We will soon plan the Sweihan and Al Quoa trips.
Stay tuned :)
