A hole in the sand

A new contact introduces a fresh crop of rumours and conspiracy theories, straight from the camel's mouth. Most news is the usual who's up and who's down - those currently in sheikhly favour, and those exiled from the majlis.

But most excitingly: "the locals have dug a secret nightclub in the desert somewhere between Dubai and Abu Dhabi." A nightclub where anything goes - from romping to roulette. This from the friend of a friend of a friend of an unnamed expat who "put the sound system in."

What is most enchanting is not so much the idea of dishdashes enjoying devious pleasures in some sandy dug-out, as the image of white-robed figures on a moonlit night, shovelling sand to excavate their hidden dive.
