That said, because none of us can sit still in the first place, we like to make sure we mark every occasion. In Dubai there is a reason to celebrate everyday, we just have to figure out what it is! First day of Summer, Vietnamese New Year, a sale at Dubai Mall, humidity less than 40% are all very good reasons to have a party. This past week, our friend Florian - the resident German - gave us a good reason to fete him. With just a few weeks left before he leaves Dubai in search of a new spiritual path - when asked of his plans he responds that he is off to write the male version of Eat, Pray, Love - we held a Florianfest at the Saffron brunch in the Atlantis Hotel.
A great group of friends came together to reminisce about the good times with Florian and nail down specifics on where in the world we would see him next. My guess is giving an interview on the Today Show about his adventures in lederhosen. Stay tuned!
