Well it was inevitable: the notorious Dubai brunch is upon us, and I cannot let the team down. Today is all about eating till we can eat no more; drinking till the table is filled with empty beer bottles, and dancing to the live music barefoot and happy in the sun.
Good pal Rio turns 34, and the venue to eat cake is the glorious Al Badia Golf Course at Dubai’s Festival City. As the gentry tee off below us, our crew gets rowdy, muddy and tipsy. From midday will 7pm we are at it. The kids are outstanding: not a whimper. Watching as we, their parents, run a mock, its a relief for them, as we relax our strict parenting, and let them go a little wild as well.
