So we change partners...again (Stephen Stills)

You say goodbye and I say hello!!

Brian and Jade crossed paths yesterday, somewhere over the Indian Ocean; Brian on his way to Nu Zild via Singapore and Jade on her way to us in Al Ain via Dubai.

Brian's final touristy thing on Friday afternoon was the Burj Khalifa - the world's tallest building. He and Jacky took the elevator up to the hundred and twenty-something floor's viewing platform and took in the view.

While they went up, I went into the Dubai Mall (a small part of which is visible in the last photo on the left hand side by the Dubai Fountain) and hung out in Book World (much more me).

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock 'n' roll.

We picked up Jade from Dubai airport on Saturday morning.

The flight schedule said she would arrive at 5.45  but the pilot must have put his foot down because the plane actually got in at 5.

Sadly, therefore, we weren't there to greet her off the plane but it was great to get a big hug when we finally arrived to collect her. And, as you can see, she was thrilled to see us too.

We are looking forward to showing Jade around sand land for the next two weeks and converting her to the joys of wearing an abeya (ar-buy-ya) and sheila (shay-la).

Love and peace - Wozza

P.S. Safe travels to Jesse as he returns to The United States for a while.
