Speaking to family and friends in the Gulf cracks me up.. brrrrrrrrrrrrr...It's cold here, they moan.

Sigh! If I could afford it my dear fellow creatures.. I would book you all tickets to come here and enjoy the freezer outside :)

(this picture was taken almost three weeks ago .. and the snow has melted since...but the temperature still drops to zero .. and the snow will fall again)

I love winter pics. The snow is romantic and has such a peaceful property about it. How have you been? Hope all is well.

I have been in Bahrain since Wednesday, i will be moving here next month, and i have never been colder in my life!! the heat at the hotel is not working properly, or maybe the hotel is not equipped with it? not sure! i admit, i am not very prepared for such cold weather, so i did not bring my heavy coat with me! it is about 13 degrees during the day with wind too and as low as 3 degrees Celsiuses at night! central heating makes a huge difference! i lived in Chicago for many years but never felt the cold weather even when it hit 20 below zero there! i cannot wait for the warm weather to reach back here.
