Flew into Abu Dhabi via Sri Lanka, arriving late in the evening, and was then driven a couple of hours out into the Empty Quarter, to the Qasr al Aarab resort. Into bed in the early hours, then up for a session with Government Undersecretaries, alongside a Monitor/Global Business Network team, including Peter Schwartz. There had been fairly heavy rain during the night, which felt slightly strange in the desert. Plumes of black smoke erupted over distant dunes, where generators were being used to power the otherwise, on-the-surface squeaky clean resort. Then back into white SUV and sped back to Abu Dhabi city to do a session with Environment Agency. Then out to airport for flight first to Bahrain and then on to Riyadh.
