Al-Baal Café taking a Tea Break in Dubai

I'm off on my camel for a break, bit of travel and work. I should be back to blogging in May however I might drop a post or two while on the road.

Meanwhile I am featured on the 8th Carnival of Islam in The west with a few of my posts. There are some fab posts featured on it by other muslim bloggers from all over the world. Fellow blogger Baraka from the States is hosting this month's carnival.

So take care dear readers and enjoy the good to be had in life and the people around you, and not to mention the fabulous pictures on Global Themes!

Al-Baal Café playing: Fhear A Bhata, a scottish folk song sung by Andy M. Stewart of Silly Wizard.

If all of us were happy, and none were sad,
And all of us were good, and none gone bad,
would we know what we were feeling, would it have a name?
How do we know we aren't hurting if we've never felt pain ?

BTW - you won't see pyramids where you're going - except for those in shopping malls and buildings shaped like them!

Prometheus saw this post NOW. Oye, you're coming to his adopted country. He'd have loved to have you over for tea. Alas, he's leaving UAE tomorrow.

Enjoy your travels. And be back to blogging soon.
