Tri-Nations during Ramadan

It’s the middle of Ramadan whch means that it makes it quite difficult to go to a bar to watch the Tri-Natoins rugby as per our usual Saturday activities.  So our group decided to go around to a friend’s house to watch the telecast of the last game of the series on their TV.

Unfortunately, the result was not ideal but the company was great.  We managed to get the BBQ going with the little bit of gas that was left in the bottle.  Over in Dubai, you cannot just duck down to the service station and replace the gas bottle or fill it up.  Instead, someone has to come around to your place from the gas agency.  Regardless, there was sufficient to cook up lunch on the balcony BBQ .

Many places in Dubai are like living in a construction site.  My friend’s place in Al Barsha is one such place.  While the rooftop pool looks out over Sheikh Zayed Road and the Burj Al Arab, the back of the apartments look over some new apartment blocks that have just gone up, others that are going up and a big hole in the ground of one about to go up.
