Night falls at The United Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi
Where the sand is very white
The cars are silver
Not painted silver, actually silver
(it drove right past my friend arriving to the hotel)
And the Desert desserts are sprinkled with real gold
Have you ever had “Umm Ali”? I will be ordering this again.
Interesting dilemma; If you get gold stuck in your teeth should you save it??
Over the top-ness aside, the level of service was great and the food absolutely delicious. When this breakfast of egg white omelette with wild mushrooms, goat cheese, roasted tomatos and potatoes arrived I thought-well, honestly, who would eat that many potatoes at breakfast.
Apparently ME, accompanied by the best freshly squeezed green apple and pomegranite juice. So yummy.
Didn’t have time to go sight-seeing this being just a quick pit-stop enroute to Sri Lanka.
More to follow soon…
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
I bet you’re all watching Downton tonight. I see “Cousin Matthew” is tweeting away but don’t want to even glance in case of spoilers.
