Othman el Ballouti is a mystery to us. He reads all the Agatha Christie books he can get his hands on, and his favourite Christie investigator is Miss Jane Marple, who he claims is reminiscent of his famous aunt. This aunt never tied the knot, instead spending her time inquiring about (and commenting on) the lives of her neighbours in the little hamlet outside Dubai. Othman enjoys socializing and seeing the world (especially in new places). Both photography and cultural exploration are great passions of his.
