Surprise Visit

One of the things I love about blogging is the way that the people who write your favourite blogs can become your friends, either electronically or actually in the flesh. I still read a lot of blogs by people who are, or used to be in Dubai, and it's a great way to stay in touch.

I had an email from Tim Newman last week. He left Dubai several months before I did, and moved to Sakhalin Island, at the extreme east of Russia. I thought it unlikely that I would ever meet him again, but then I got an email from him. He was coming to Madrid, of all places, for a business trip. Drinkies? You bet.

You can read about Tim's impressions of Madrid here.

Cheers for the beers, mate. It was good to meet up again. I never went to see Indiana Jones, I had bodyclock issues which sent me to bed at 5pm for a two hour nap from which I woke at 5am the next morning.
