Dubai, arriverderci...

Last day in Umm Sequeim... Organizing the packing of bags to eliminate hand baggage (to conform with Easyjet stipulations). In the background Judy is reading to Isaak, after his morning at school. Yesterday Judy and I collected eight books at the Dubai Library -- all reckoned to appeal to a four-year-old ("Mog's Christmas" and suchlike...). This morning David and I attended a tour for tourists at the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding -- SMCCU. Our tourist "guide" was a young woman form London, married about 20 years ago to an Emirati, and convert to Islam. She explained some basics to us -- very clear and entertaining.
Our flight from Dubai leaves at two in the morning, but before that we have a party at Nathan's creche, and then attend the dress rehearsal of Judy's choir -- both pre-Christmassy events.

I hardly need to say that the sun continues its glorious habit of shining! and the white waves crash upon the white sand, and the warm air caresses the skin. So naturally, somewhat sad to depart...
