Postcards: Al-Ain by Carla Botha

Hello EV

The land of Liwa spells infinity but there is

a catch. It takes

and gives just enough. Somehow it seems

infinity has limits when I gaze at seemingly

endless sand dunes. The camels and Bedouins know

better, appreciate more. I am learning.

I call this home.
