These are the resident felines. Pushkin is the fluffy one. Pobedonostsev (Pobo) is the fat, striped one.  Both are Montreal rescue kitties, love to chase birds and moths, sit on any freshly washed clothes they can find, and are ridiculously spoiled.

the mosque


This beautiful mosque rises up out of the surroundings of Abu Dhabi. It is literally impossible to miss as you are driving by. It draws you in. After a little fence-hopping (in front of the security guard!) to get inside the grounds, and the mandatory opportunity to don an abaya, I had a lovely afternoon exploring!
