Visitor #1

I mentioned my little sister a few posts ago – she is currently living in Manila, Philippines and is heading to the Middle East for American Thanksgiving a week from today!! I. Can’t. Wait.

Then: circa January 1989

Being my mother’s daughter, I have been planning this since little Lou booked her flight 6 weeks ago. Of course there are the standard tourist destinations on our itinerary (Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, Burj al Arab, the beach/gulf swimming, desert trek, Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, creek/abra ride, the souks/Bur Dubai), but I am gearing this post to anyone from Dubai (or has visited the area, too!): are there any restaurants, locations, neighborhoods, etc that are a big hit with your visitors? Anything off the beaten path? Favorite places to eat? I want to make this a special week of fun and different experiences for her (and me too!) I would appreciate it!!

Until next time…
