When my husband goes into the lowest floor of our house, in order to make music there, then Gorazan follows him at once hearing the first tones. At this common fun he would absolutely like to participate.
Yes, this wonderful Saluki is really able, not only to “talk”, but also to sing along with a melody ...

The pigeon on the roof

In February 2006 in Dubai – a pigeon appears daily at the feeding time of the dogs on the roof of the house, in order to check whether the dogs left perhaps something to eat in their cups.

Impressions from on the Way

Welcome to Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates. It has, for my taste a particularly beautiful Arabic flair.
I like Dubai ...

The metropolis - Dubai - is a pulsating centre of the Middle East and also a magnetic attraction for many businessmen and tourists from all over the world. Therefore gigantic construction projects are planned for the future further on and a lot of building-sites are to be seen at the moment.
