During the boys' mid-term break, we took our first excursion out of Kuwait.  It was the first time, since arriving on July 12, that I had been more than 20km from my front door.  It was a wonderful week.

Burj al Arab (Tiger hit a golf ball off the helipad)

One little boy didn't like it so much

He made me very dizzy - spun non-stop for 10 min

Recognize me?

the contrast is striking
 Dubai hosts Global Village for about 4 months and we were lucky enough to be in town for the opening.  It is a "world's fair" with food and goods from many countries, as well as rides and shows.

We're home!

Excited to climb! (Begged for 20 min to be allowed)

I can't believe you are making me do this.


OK, maybe I'm happy now.


When we first told the boys we were moving to Kuwait, we had them look up on a map and learn about the area.  Jamie discovered that we were going to be close to the tallest building in the world - the Burj Khalifa. We promised that we would visit it while living here, so we got to keep our promise.

Goodbye, Dubai!

  1. Looks like you had a great time. I'm not sure I'd be so keen on the Burj Khalifa - heights and I don't like each other very much.
