    Positively lunar, Sandy. You really have D wanting to visit the desert now. I think I might get too thirsty and I don't see a beer in sight. ;)

    Looks very Sandy!!!!!! Shame you couldn't make better use of the hotel pools. Looked very refreshing.

    Fascinating desert photos. I think I'm going into my "Lawrence of Arabia" mode.
