The Long Weekend
So, this weekend has been very sociable: Thursday evening; at Tim Newman's leaving do, Friday; a long lunch with Mr & Mrs Dubaibilly, and today; some work, lunch at Aprés in the Mall of the Emirates followed by a bit more work followed by nothing much really.
Aprés is a bit surreal. It's actually a part of the Kempinski Hotel. It's a restaurant/bar and it overlooks the ski slope. The interior design is pure Brit sixties. The food is fairly eclectic, but fondues feature prominently. Good fun. After an hour or so sitting watching the skiers and the snowboarders, it was weird to leave the place and realise that you are still in the middle of the desert!
But I do like this weekend idea.
