A short hiatus

Am in the UAE this week, and while I would have loved to give impressions, I have been ordered to lay off the computer by my doctor after a rather painful inflammation of shoulder muscles that has left my right arm very painful and in a sling most of the time. Back in a few days, when it all gets better.
