On Thursday we flew to Dubai where my husband had several meetings scheduled. We always catch an early morning flight so that we are able to make a quick trip to The Dubai Mall where we visit our favorite bookstore, Kinokuniya.
And then we have Nordsee seafood soup and sourdough bread for lunch. Even though I don't eat seafood anymore, this has been a tradition for us since our first trip to Dubai together so it's one that I maintain.
Back at the hotel, while he was taking care of business, I found ways to entertain myself.
A little crochet. A little drink. And a walk around the hotel grounds.
Although Dubai never does get as hot as Kuwait, it can be very, very humid during the summer. Fortunately, the weather was actually pretty good while we were there.
The hotel is actually right across the street from the airport, but because of all the landscaping, it feels like you are in a lush, tropical environment.
That evening, our friend, Yamanaka, treated us to Japanese food and drink.
It's always nice to get away for the weekend and Dubai is a great place for just that.
Hope your weekend has been a good one.
