Well, there appears to have been an influx of Syrian refugees since I was last here. 

How on earth could that happen?

Still, it's bloody hot and it's Februarylou_lol

I went a few years ago with some friends and had a great time. Foolishly went during Ramadan and had to search high and low for alcohol - which meant that when located we bought more than normal and returned home with what felt like multiple organ failure. A fantastic place though, complete assault on the senses.

Been here with the Mrs before but first time here for Kid Goat. She is a bit gobsmacked by it but her and her friend are enjoying themselves. How many camels should I be getting for 2 blonde 12 year olds?

Recommend this place if you don't know it already.

Great for a meal and drinks on the roof at sunset. 

Bit jealous. We may go in April again.

Mrs G was up for a spot of winter sun. I didn't predict the snowstorm after reaching a couple of thousand metres into the Atlas Mountains. Not best pleased.

 Ah. Sounds awful. For proper winter sun with a 4 hour flight you must go to south Grant Canaria. Morocco is better than UK but not really warm enough in Feb. We (I mean my partner) have done a lot of winter sun research. 

A lot...

 Not too bad here in the city. A bit of rain in the afternoons but pretty warm. Wasn't prepared for the snow yesterday though! Worth it for the scenery. Home tomorrow. Looking forward to dicking United on sunday.

Mrs Sog is up for it (fnarfnar) so we will probably spend a few days there late summer. Off to Venice and Florence for a short break in a few weeks too. Having an extension built this year so a few short breaks will be in order rather than one long one. Any other suggestions for a short break in Europe outside of the usual places?

I take it the golden one with the blue nose band was the holiday fling?
