Here in the UAE many days are deemed national holidays for religious reasons, one of which is Prophet Mohammed’s birthday – today! – which means those who work get the day off…and we get to see more friends because of it.
Erroll’s great mate Roy and my lovely friend Jody have been constant companions to us and their two boys seek Kingsley out as a playmate. And tonight the two families meet for our Christmas dinner. We choose Nezesaussi Grill at the Al Manzil Hotel. Its tops in there: a sports bar that is clean, loud, fun and serves delicious food. It helps that we arrive at happy hour – two for one booze so us four adults are very happy.
So is Kingsley for tonight we celebrate his 3rd birthday with an improptu song among his little mates. And pressies care of the Badawis went down a treat for the little man…
