Very nice Abdul, I love riddles, and it is nicely written. I thought I guessed it especially when it says "drops directly into the sea", then I got lost at the end when you actually mentioned what I thought it is "mkab saida"! I still feel this is it :), will wait for the other guesses though! salamat, rouba dabbagh
