Mystery of the Lights of Mankind - "...And inside each of us the battle between Light and Darkness rages...Everything in life breathes both the Light and the Dark...Every action and every reaction in life is ruled by this clash...Every injustice and every act of morality...Every feeling of guilt and every sense of forgiveness."

Cities on the Arabian Gulf have their distinctive lighting at night, extremely bright, connected by illuminated motorways crossing the deserts. Awsome view!
