We went for a sail on Lake Minnetonka. It was a beautiful evening.
We toured the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. It was absolutely beautiful. It is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and the 8th largest in the world. Up to 40,000 people can worship in the mosque at the same time!
We went shopping at Dubai’s Gold Souk. We didn’t buy gold.
We visited Atlantis on the Palm Jumeirah. The aquarium was amazing and huge. The building was beautiful. The tea was delightful.
After enjoying a yacht ride through the Persian Gulf and all the spectacular views of Dubai, we jumped in for a swim a float (the water is really salty!) in the Gulf.
Priya cooked up fish curry for us at 6 AM. It was perfect.
We went on a walk with our friends, Cheryl & Vaughn. They live a few blocks from the Dennis-the-Menance house.
We celebrated Ryan’s birthday at Lozo’s Mexican restaurant in Chicago. Gary told the waitress it was Ryan’s birthday. The karaoke lady sang a birthday song to Ryan.
Nikki and Josh bought a beautiful new home in Chicago. We finally visited them at the end of August. And while there we cataloged their stylish sinks.
