08-08-16 Butterfly Garden

Monday 8th August 2016

This is the benefit of not working: Today is Monday; I get to hang out with one of my bestie buddies, my darling preggers friend Rio and her visiting mum, plus my own Mummá Dôra is in town and we are ready to explore a part of Dubai we have never seen: the dusty desert landscape of Barsha 3 where miraculously a human made oasis looms green and lush from the sand, in the form of the Butterfly Gardens!

Once inside we get stopped by a young, hip Saudi Arabian family who remembered Kingsley from the other night when mum and I took a much needed pitstop at the Dusit Thani hotel’s chilled lobby after I made mum walk home from the Dubai Mall. It was here as mum and I sat on comfy lounges cooling off from the 40 degrees outside, Kingsley began playing with two toddlers in the indoor water feature…the same two kids here at the Butterfly Garden that Kingsley can’t stop hugging and kissing right now!
