Kingsley: Those who Build Dubai

Saturday 3rd January

Third day on the trot to be glued to Kingsley; just he and I and our own wants and desires for our entertainment. Today we met with our friends the Heitmanns in a secret children’s play park in the middle of busting Downtown. Here, the kids exchanged gifts and I even received my birthday pressie (which was totally unexpected and a true delight to receive. Thank you Shell and Mike!)

On our way home we stopped by a building site and paid a visit to a kindly worker. He stayed with us, on the side of the road, for a good half hour entertaining the child and in turn Kingsley bringing sunshine and innocent joy to a man who is part of the army which builds Dubai and who is doubtless far away from his own loved ones…
