In the photo (from Saudi Press Agency), King Abdullah who is holding court in Mecca for the end of Ramadan meets the new Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim. Unusually for these photos, the curtains are open and clearly reveal a large number of construction cranes outside, presumably related to the next phase of Mecca expansion. Maybe Sheikh Tamim will take a hint about what's actually involved in getting ready for FIFA 2022 World Cup.
