Let me know if you're getting blocked for odd reasons, and I'll see what I can do for you :)

Gday Seabee, The old photos brought back many memories, we lived in Dubai from 1974 until 1998, have been back many times since for visits, never ceases to amaze. Enjoy your blog, regards

The old Dubai is not blocked for me too! Is that because I live in Brazil?
