The enthusiasm I expressed last Thursday in
this post was, alas, premature. Yes, my client in the Sandlands was adamant that I should attend CabSat and translate his exciting new media project into a coherent business plan. But... this is a guy who is warm hearted but has his head in the clouds... he omitted to confirm the fee I would earn and failed to book the flights and accomodation! So I shall not be winging my way to DXB this afternoon.

This form of business incoherence would, I fear, dismay much more gravely one with no experience of how things all too often work in the Gulf. So... maybe next time, insh'allah.

But there are consolations, here in the Heimat!
