So, we stayed in Dubai for Christmas (and New Year, too). And I have to say that we spend a surprisingly nice, even festive and relaxed 24th of December, even though it may not sound like the most xmassy Xmas to you.
First we tried to catch some festive spirit at Dubai Mall. Their decoration can really keep up with any other (bad) Christmas decoration. At 27°C the weather was just perfect so we sat outside at Carluccio’s right in front of Burj Dubai and the water fountains. Alex had to get mad at the waiters (without him getting mad at someone it wouldn’t have been a real Christmas day, believe me), but once the food arrived he relaxed and we enjoyed the sunny afternoon.
80% off sales dragged me to the Gate Village afterwards. And while I was browsing Villa Moda, Tsumori Chisato, Maison Martin Margiela, Marni, and, and, and (just to come out with – nothing) – Alex kept himself busy with my camera. I really loved the atmosphere over there – just like a warm summer night in Europe. The day was rounded off by a perfect Frappuccino Caffe at Café Florian and traffic jam on our way home to Discovery Gardens. What a lovely day.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
