Wind buffet was the least here so...
Ya, thats a new word Kavita came up with when she heard some noise from the backpack she was carrying up the hill two nights ago. We are still trying to place what the sound was!

Went for a overnighter to Jebel Hafeet for some barbecued chicken, rough sleeping in tents and awesome morinng views. Missed tea big time though since the fire was a lil' bit on the dying side due to winds. Went star spotting, fire gazing, rock-top contemplating, fossil hunting, climbing (falling sometimes 😊 hey gravity works there too!) The hot springs were closed so no dip in the allegedly healing waters of Green Mubazzara. To kill time we had to hit Al Ain zoo which was a big mistake. Well maintained but almost all the animals were in a sad state. Especially the Gorilla, which was so frustrated by the very look on its face. The lion was growling for food and the Chimps were wailing to be let inside the shaded areas. I hate to imagine what would be the scenario in Dubai zoo. The episode completely put me off and I just wanted to get the hell out of there. We did see the penguins and that was ok. Would have been better if it was a lil more colder for those happy feet. Anyways........
