Christmas EveDecember 25, 2013

The day began with the idea of going to the beach to watch the sun rise over the ocean, but this was not the appropriate day for that plan.
But the rain could not keep us from having breakfast at Al Khan restaurant – qeema (ground beef and potato), chana (chickpeas/garbanzo beans) and paratha (flat bread).
Then, a quick drive into Dubai to get to the Burj Khalifa in time for our admission to the observation deck. The tickets were nearly all sold out this week, so timing was inflexible.
It was a particularly clear day, so the view was excellent.
These are the World Islands.
BabyBird and DaddyBird.
Then it was time for a chocolate binge.
Then there was a fair amount of shopping and roaming around the mall.
The day ended with our traditional meal with friends at Bu Qtair restaurant. Fish, prawns, paratha and good friends.
We love meeting with such a mix of people from different countries and cultures. It was so much fun. The world would be a more peaceful place if everyone did this.
