I am lost in admiration of some of the things I see in Dubai…I agree, they literally have all the money in the world, but then, that money has been put to good use. The superb roads are the first thing I see…the 130 km journey from Dubai to Ras al Khaima, the Emirate our friends live in, took about 50 minutes! (The United Arab Emirates are seven Emirates, ruled by 7 Emirs…Dubai, Abu Dhabi,Ras al Khaima, Sharjah, Ajman, Al Ain, and Al Quwain …the last I am not sure about..Abu Dhabi is the richest!)
The latest Canon ad has what I think is one of the most amazing pictures ever….a picture of a bubble in the act of bursting.
Nothing brings on a demonstration of affection like a proposed departure I think, especially for a longish time!
Well…not quite…constipating our luggage with all the stuff (mainly stuff meant for, and asked for by, dd…darling daughter)is a difficult task.
I moderate a family quiz group called (guess what!) QuizFamilies…it’s open to everyone. We meet on the first or second Saturday of each month, post-prandial, and have a lot of fun and not-terribly-serious quizzing. And I usually post an account of the evening to the egroup so that those who couldn’t make it can read about it…
