Kingsley: Parklands

Saturday 22nd November 2014

Chirren reared in the UAE are (affectionately) known as ‘concrete babies’, because they rarely get the chance to experience the touch of nature through their feet. They are always stepping on either tiles or carpet, and when outside pavers or concrete. You see babies that grow up to be kids here, especially in Dubai, are mostly stuck indoors, and their little toes do not frequently enjoy the varying textures found in the physical world.

But I should like Kingsley to not only get to know, but to enjoy and prefer Mother Nature’s lush landscapes. So it starts with us – Erroll and I – as we introduce our boy to the beauty that is the outdoors. Step one: parklands…
