Culture in Dubai:

We used to complain about the lack of culture in Dubai. Well, you know what?! Dubai is hosting so many events these days that your head starts to spin: the Jazz festival, the Art fair, Shakira, Roger Waters, the Boat show, the Desert Rock festival and the list goes on...

So we went on Thursday to the jazz festival and danced to the beat of Dee Dee Bridgewaters' tribal drums. Brilliant.

We had an enchanting afternoon , the next day at the Art Fair at the Madinat which is already a magical place a la "Ali Baba" style.

We visited galleries from all over the world. We actually saw works of art which you would never dream of seeing in real life such as Picasso, Miro, Warhol and many more...I could have spent a week over there!

And Michael could have spent a week over here! We went to the Boat show. Fantastic engines! They had everything, from monohulls to catamarans, from sail boats to engine boats. I like looking at the Lagoons, they are large catamarans, the size of a villa and so majestic and elegant and yet they are sporty sail boats.
