The main objective for their trip is to attend the F1 this weekend, but they are definitely making sure they are experiencing everything the UAE has to offer, they have had a full program ever since they arrived!
After having spent a few days in Dubai seeing the sights there, we started the Abu Dhabi week by visiting the Grand Mosque.
I also took them to the latest exhibition at Manarat at Saadyiat, which very suitably is an exhibition with local Emirati artists.
It was fun, because quite a few of the installations were interactive:
One day we had lunch at the Eastern Mangroves at one of my favourite Lebanese restaurants. Being able to sit outside is such a gift, the temperatures at the moment are just perfect.
They've also been on a desert safari one afternoon, to Ferrari World, to Yas Water World, to the Rogos rollercoaster restaurant, the Yas Mall and to Saadyiat Beach. They even took part in the National UAE Celebrations at school!
We introduced them to 'Burgerfuel', the best burger joint we have (from NZ!). Again, sitting outside, aaahhh! Makes the food taste even better!
Today they are going to experience a true UAE happening - the Friday Brunch - before it's time for their highlight of the week, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
