Rock fall - TanufNo way through !

A lovely sunny day from early morning until well after midday.

By the time I was looking at this there was definitely rain in the air, I could smell it !! so time for an about turn.

Yemeni Style Jebel House (update).

Yemeni Style Jebel House No 2I posted an image of this house about a year ago, from a negative taken some time earlier: it looked precarious perched on the rock wall.

Well the owners or government must have though so: the dirt road has been replaced by hard-top and Buttressing added.

THE SHAHNAMA.

“Listen: this story’s one you ought to know,
You’ll reap the consequence of what you sow.
This fleeting world is not the world where we
Are destined to abide eternally:
And for the sake of an unworthy throne
You let the devil claim you for his own.
I’ve few days left here, I’ve no heart for war,
I cannot strive and struggle any more,
But hear an old man’s words: the heart that’s freed
From gnawing passion and ambitious greed
Looks on kings’ treasures and the dust as one……..”

Wadi Tanuf – again.

Trees against rock - TanufTrees grow well in Tanuf wadi; there is some surface water throughout the year & occasionally very deep pools can form, not to mention the dirt road being washed away.
