Not to overshadow our trip to Belgium which was fantastic, I've been asked to show more photos from my time in Dubai.
This scene was pretty common because Dubai is exploding in size. Apparently, 8 new international schools opened there last year and 8 more will open this fall. These schools are opening with a few hundred students each and turning folks away. Change of career, anyone?
This is the lady I met at a cultural center set up to create historically accurate representations of UAE . I wish I knew how long ago those masks were actually worn. This woman worked with silver and had plated the small cane that I bought for Coy. Yeah, he thought it was a ridiculous purchase too.
I had to return to school a day before my principal so I left Pierre and my camera with him. He was able to do a bit more site seeing than I was- such are the benefits of being highly ranked. I especially wanted to see shots of the desert tour. I suppose I should have explained Pierre's preference for posing alone.
