Can't say I've ever had an Arab man tune my pipes, but there's a first for everything! 😮
I was piping at the Inland Sea in Qatar (as you do!), which marks the border between Saudi and Qatar, when a ginormous 4x4 launched over a dune in front of me. The car skidded to a stop and out popped this Qatari man here. As he marched towards me I stopped, for fear that he was about to absolutely bollock me for piping near the border, and he just shouted "YALLA, AGAIN!"
I piped up again and he moved even closer, with his ear turned towards the bagpipes. He looked at me and calmly said "they're slightly out of tune." I stopped and responded with a "how can you even hear that?!" and he replied with a casual "Oh, I'm part of the Qatari pipe band, LOL" and he then proceeded to tune the drones as I played again. WHAT?! 🇶🇦
