Dubai manages to amaze constantly and the New Year fireworks were impressive — the Littles and I watched on live television from our comfy villa though. Older boys were out and about with their uncle and friends. Braver souls than I am to delve into 1.5 million people expected were out watching fireworks at both the Burj Khalifa and Burj al Arab.

It’s another beautiful morning though this January 1. I will miss this view when we leave here in 3 weeks. I am not sure where next New Year’s Eve will be spent (Florida probably) but I am hoping for another year as amazing and wonderful as this one has been.

Wishing the best to everyone.
