By now Vanessa is a veteran of the Dubai circuit.  :)

Nice shots.  I really like the one of Lani.  As Steve Haskin would exclaim:  Lani's got dapples on his dapples.

This is her 11th Dubai World Cup in a row, her first one was to see Invasor win in 2007...

Unfortunately she has to deal with this for the trip home:

My personal belief is that if someone is seriously intent on doing harm to their fellow human beings then he or she will not be deterred by a regulation to stow their laptop, ipad or Kindle rather than carry it on board.

It's really quite laughable, IMO.

I don't know about that.  A particularly violent person could force their seat-mate to watch an entire season of Donald Trump on Apprentice causing them to run amok in the confines of the plane. :)

Or, force them to read one of his borderline illiterate books on their Kindle.  Even a peaceful old chap like myself might wring somebody's neck about halfway through chapter 1.

Steve,you obviously know little or nothing about torture techniques.For the practice to be effective you would have to get one of the books on tape (read by the Donald himself so you could get the full benefit of his pronunciation of China. Russia ....etc).
