All a-quiver

It seems that customs personnel at Dubai airport are really having to be vigilant these days. Following on from Mercy's failed rabbit rescue mission, the uniforms had to pull over a modern-day Robin Hood. Clover's new acquaintance Will got stopped a couple of days ago when entering the country with a bow and a quiver full of arrows.

After eight hours in their "care", Will was released and sent on his way. Clover had to go and rescue him, and on grilling him, heard that his hobby was archery. While a commendable pastime, it's probably not the best idea in the world to try and bring a medieval weapon through customs here - unless you're planning to rob the rich and give to the poor in the tradition of that good ole folk hero from Ye Auld England.
