Abu Dhabi–Feb 2, 2013

After 2 tiring days in Dubai we decided to take it easy today. Apologies to all of you who are disappointed but our wellbeing comes first SmileIMGW0244

 

We had been to Abu Dhabi in 2010 so we had already seen some of the key sights. We did however take advantage of the wonderful welcome tent set up on the dock.

Along with a portable x-ray truck there were greeters handing out baked sweets (dipped in honey!) and a tent where 2 ladies were making those treats. Also present was a lady doing henna hand painting and a group of male dancers. All in all a wonderful welcome.

One thing did strike us, it rained, the second day in a row as it also did in Dubai. Very unusual, it doesn’t rain often here.IMGP5059
