Dubai

September really was quite a month.. we went from Amsterdam to Cairo, Iraq and then finally wrapped things up with friends and family in Dubai. We stayed at my uncle's place, my mom flew in from Karachi to spend some much need time with her grandson. My brother flew in from Sri Lanka, he was having a boy's getaway and catching some cricket matches. M has a few friends and cousin's who live there, as do mine. The plan was to try to meet them all, but by the time we got to Dubai we were exhausted and hibernation seemed like the best idea.

So we ate 

 D played with a miniature shopping cart.. how cute is that!

he sat in a car

he slept in a car (a crazy expensive bed that had lights)

I met my friends.. I have known these ladies since I was 11 or 12 years old.

M met up with his cousin..

and here's a little before

and after for you.. D with my brother at six months and again at two years.

Three days went by in a blur.. and our adventure came to an end.. hope you all enjoyed the trip.
