The Boys go off “in search of a mirage” on our first night in the desert. Had a wonderful time with a reasonably large crowd from the diplomatic community, hosted by a group of welcoming young Emirati’s who took us for camel rides, introduced us to a falcon and served us a huge meal on persian rugs as the sun went down. The kids were even more awestruck than the day they saw the hotel pool. Apparently you can go out camping in the desert once the weather cools down a bit. So we might have to ship out the bus afterall. Click on the photo to see more.
