Ever since I saw a photograph of the milky way,with the starry sky perched high above the trees and glistening softly in the calm waters of the Al Qudra lake when browsing away in astro lab, I have wanted to go there. A quiet oasis, with plenty of birds -ducks,swans,flamingos- and thorny trees with pigeons’nests. Almost every thorny tree out there had a pigeon’s nest. There were throngs of swans wading away in the water as if they were dancing to the silent music of the ripples.
I have always been in love with the sea. I did not think that I would fall in love with the desert,with its yellow tones, the green of the lake and the trees, and the sky lit in orange red hues.
