Well, it's been a month since the last time we met. The days fly by. Since my last post I enjoyed two weeks out of the office. It was nice to do nothing. A "stay-cation". Afterwards, I headed down to Dubai for a site selection visit. Man, it was hot!
But not as hot as I expected. 36C (97F). Inside it was great! I stayed the first two nights in the Madinat Jumeriah. It's a fantastic property. There are two hotels on the site and I was in Mina A' Salam. In an Ocean Suite. Very comfortable. And the furniture and finishings are fantastic. See the room below ...
The second two nights, I moved out to the Atlantis and stayed in a Terrace Suite overlooking the Palm and the hotel beach front. It is truly a remarkable property. Every child's dream (regardless of age!)
The staff there was exceptional and hopefully I'll be back in May 2013. I'll let you know which location I picked when we meet next. Until then ...
Well, the new school year, and for the WCO the new financial year. Microsoft lost valuable points in my book by closing down the old sites on Office Live. I liked it, but now I'm on weebly and it looks to be an easy enough platform to manage. Here's to the rest of a pleasant summer and looking forward to a productive autumn.
