The Empty Quarters: Yearning to go back




The Empty Quarters or A’Rub A’Khali is like no other. This great desert, of barren land, which is inhospitable and harsh, grips you in a way words can not describe or do justice, the silence, the emptiness, the soft sands, even the mirages leaves an impression on your mind like a tattoo which will last. forever. Nothing is welcoming, but you still yearn to go back to it. Only those few who have been deep inside will understand this privilege.
