I have to admit: I’ve been living in the UAE for 4 years now and I had not been to Abu Dhabi until yesterday. I know it’s strange. But I have to say – I didn’t really miss anything. OK, Abu Dhabi is greener than Dubai, the Corniche is very nice and the city feels more like a city and not like a loose collection of hotels and shopping malls like Dubai. But for my taste it’s a little too… hm, authentic?
We went there to support our colleague and friend Michi who took part in the triathlon. He finished it, but he wasn’t really happy with his time, since he got injured on the way (the scratch on his leg looks really bad) and couldn’t give a 100%.
Anyways, all was good. But I’m so not sporty – it’s frustrating and embarrassing. Think I was much more exhausted after that long day than Michi.
