Ramadan hours means that I finish work around 2:30PM, which means there is a whole lot of day to be filled in with cool activities both Kingsley and his parents want to do…like go to the pool and swim. Taking a walk or going to the park is out of the question unless we want to shrivel up such is the extreme heat of a Dubai summer. And shopping in the malls is boring, as is doing groceries. And there can be no picnics or public displays of eating or drinking due to the Holy Month, so pool it is.
Friends we left behind at U.P. Tower still invite us for swims at their (our previous) rooftop pool. Today friend Mercedes joined us as we cooled our hot heels in the magnificent, clean water. King splashed madly about in Erroll’s arms; I swam some laps, then we swapped.
The child was thrilled! So were we. Our little aqualoving family.
