What you see pictured above is a morning on one of our balconies a few weeks ago. To me, that's the middle eastern climate I was expecting (minus the camels, there is a constant lack of camels here) - a shining sun with a slight Mediterranean breeze on top. So when the prognosis for this week says rain until Sunday, and not rain-rain, no no, acid rain, even some spicy Japanese nuclear rain according to some, needless to say - I feel ripped off.
(Update: now they're saying it'll be sunny. Ginette's terrace here we come?)
