I am sorry I haven’t written for a while. I have been busy, but don’t worry I’m back now and have a lot to write about. I’ve spent the last two weekends in Dubai attending the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Tournament, hanging out in four and five star hotels, studying for my Arabic Level 1 final exam and I even got to attend a Palestinian Wedding. It has been an amazing two weeks. And I even passed my Arabic class!
The Dubai Duty Free Tennis tournament is a two week long ATP and WTA tour event. They boast entry lists of most of the top ten men and women. It is so popular that the men’s tournament sold out in about 45 minutes. I saw some of my favorite players (except Rafael Nadal–so sad!) and became a fan of some new players. The women played during the first week and I took way too many pictures!
Did you know they have air-conditioned bus stops in Dubai? If I ever need one in the summer I’ll be glad they exist!
I also saw Juan Martin del Potro, but didn’t get any good shots of him. I did get to see my second favorite player–and my Mom’s favorite–so I took a few extra shots.
Roger Federer. I love the pink!
In between tennis (when not at work) I spent some quality time in my Dubai hotels. Here are some of the sights from this weekend.
While in Dubai this weekend I also attended the wedding of a friend’s daughter. I will write about that in my next post. It was a wonderful experience!
