My goodness how can we be a 3rd of the way into this project already??? If you’ve not seen the Project 10 before you can read how we got started here. I usually do the project over a day the first week of the month – this month that fell on the week of the Eid holiday here in UAE. Much of the celebrating happens in peoples homes, but people also use it as an excuse to get out and about – we used it as an opportunity to go up to Dubai and do some things on our Dubai wish list!
The day started off gently with some lounging around…
before we set off on the journey… (yes they are the worlds biggest chapatis from the bakery by our home!)
When we got there things didn’t work out as we hoped – some things we wanted to do we couldn’t, but we did manage to get to Ras Al Khor, a wetland site in the middle of Dubai, to see the flamingos (and to check out how crazy big the Burj Khalifa looks compared to the rest of Dubai!).I worked on a Ramsar site back in Hong Kong so I was really excited to see another big city Ramsar site – I have to say, I was a little disappointed – but the kids loved playing with the binoculars and seeing all the birds 🙂
And then we headed down towards the creek to explore some galleries and have a rest and a drink
These girls will take any space and turn it into a dancing stage!!!
We rounded the day off with a trip to the Dubai Mall (the worlds biggest mall no less, and believe me it felt like half the world were in there!!) and dinner at the rainforest cafe, before heading to see the fountains, which we couldn’t see through the crowds!! Ah well, something for us to do another time… and here’s proof that even photographer Mummies break out their pop up flash sometimes, and take the cheesy tourist shot!!!
Now head on over to see what Hope has been up to this November,
Sara T - I can’t get over the flamingos. I want some. Standing in my lawn. Is that like over-sized naan bread? I am such an American. Beautiful girls. I dig the cityscape so, so much.
Nancy - I want to eat your girls up, I love that they seem to be such good friends! What a fun day to document and share with us!
Kate - You have such action packed lives!! But so fun too – and I really love seeing this project and feeling a bit closer to you all 🙂
efi - so cute !! love the giant bread! have you changed your pp..? i love the first two colors!
Val Spring - I could never get bored of seeing a day in your life. Already looking forward to next month’s post!
