Deserts often have fewer plant pests too, so it is a great place for agriculture if you have the water and the right species for the temperature regime.

Thanks Berend.


The two towns are very new, very modern and absolutely air-conditioned! Not a bad photo from a commercial A-380! My first time on this type of plane!

Kind regards, Berend.


It certainly is, Berend. Yet, this part of the Arabian Peninsula gets quite a bit more rain then the rest, and the deep rocky gorges maintain permanent pools, but it is out on the big alluvial fans that underground water is tapped to create oases, such as this. The small dam is more about flash flood control and groundwater recharge than direct irrigation.

Greetings from afar.


Hello Александр,

There's room for a St Petersburg sign between the London and Sydney signs, and pointing directly at the camera! Glad you like the image!


That's a great idea for you, *Berend8* You can break your journey either/or to and from Australia by exploring Dubai and beyond! It is so welcoming and so easy to visit... and lots of options.


This photo was selected for the cover design of the book, Stehbens IR (2015) "From The Edge of Oblivion; History of the Stehbens Family in its Social Context 1600-1900".

I understand your concern and empathy, Jicé. Thank you for that.

L+YS. I like it.

I have read plenty on Wilpena, and look forward to the day when I have at least done what you have done there, Berend.
