Hi from Dubai! My parents came to Dubai last night, so I’ll be busy showing them around in the week to come. Today I took my mom to the beach club at Ritz-Carlton. We have a beach club membership through Poul’s job, and we also have the opportunity to apply for a limited number of guest cards for friends and family annually, which is a great benefit.
It was the first time for my mom to visit a beach club in Dubai, and she was absolutely thrilled. The staff brought us chilled bottles of water in our own little cooler, and later on, we ordered lunch, which was brought to our sun beds. Before she went, she claimed that she was absolutely fine with the public beaches, but now I’m not sure that she’ll ever be able to do without the sunbed-side service and the parasols.
In the evening, we went for dinner at Nando’s. The Portuguese chicken restaurant in the same building as we live in, so this is where we always end up, when nobody wants to cook. We just take the elevator down, and we’re right in front of the restaurant. It’s almost too convenient, but at least Nando’s is reasonably healthy. Would have been much worse if we had a Burger King in our building..:)
