It says here that your location is Abu Dhabi so did you move back?

Sadly no, LH - just too indolent to edit my profile. I'm sat in a charming Cotswold Stone pub next to Bleheim Palace, which serves as my office these days!

But it's kind of cool to be able to keep in touch with my old Mid East friends via the BE forum....

Working from a Cotswold stone pub or in my office in Karama? A hard choice but I know which location I would honestly prefer...and it certainly ain't here.

It's been a pleasant sojourn for a couple of years - moving back to London at the end of the month, though. Enough frolicking amongst the pheasants and wildflowers for SYB.....
