Lekker weekend en ruim 35 graden. Vanavond relaxen in een compound waar een collega een huis met tuin heeft. Weet nu trouwens ook waarom ik rondom de 22e geen vlucht kon vinden.

More than 400,000 Saudis will fly to Dubai to spend the upcoming school vacation, as the examinations are due to end next week, a source in the travel industry said.
Most of the seats were sold out about three weeks ago, even though the ticket prices of all airline companies were considerably higher. All flights in the SaudiDubai sector are booked nearly full, and the few remaining seats are sold at 60 percent higher than the normal rate, said the deputy chairman of the transport committee at the Council of Saudi Chambers, Sultan Al-Najjar. Even those who booked early had to pay up to 35 percent higher than the normal price, Al-Najjar said. While a round-trip ticket was available at SR1,300 in normal seasons, now it reached SR1,750, he said. The increase in other classes has been 60 percent.
