A couple of days

     There is a lot of excitement that went in planning our time together after my mom arrived. I wanted to share everything with her and manage to show her all the relevant things in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.  I think I did a pretty good job spreading all the activities over the two weeks she was here. I am mostly glad I surprised her and I am pretty sure some of the things she experienced totally exceeded her expectations! That is just the kind of land UAE is!

     Its just wonderful that we are able to live in a place that most people only see as tourists. On day one we visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the Central Market, had the gold cappuccino at the Emirates Palace and of course, went to the mall. My mom had a first taste of the authentic arabic food and loved it!

     Day two was a little more than gloomy, so we decided to show my mom Masdar City and went on a ride with the driver-less car. That was exciting to say the least. We also checked in at Dubai Mall where the crowds were absolutely overwhelming...

     Looking at these pictures makes me smile. My mom is such a young, beautiful person and I am so grateful for all the memories we have made. We don't get to spend as much time together as we would like, but we are closer than ever!
