I arrived in Dubai last Thursday. The weather here is amazing it is warm and sunny every day. Even the nights are warm and bright with all the amazing lights of the high rise buildings. On Friday I went shopping and at some point during the day, amazed with all the beautiful shops I lost my purse with all my money and couldn’t get back to my hotel. Luckily for me, I met a lovely Irish woman called Cathy who recognized my Irish accent and knew I was in trouble.
She kindly said she would help me but first, we had to go to a big horse racing festival where she had her horse running and I would have to get the horse ready as her groom was sick. At the race course, it was packed with people lots of the men dressed in white robes. After a while, it was time for me to bring the horse into the parade ring for the race and he looked amazing. The horse’s name was Mr.Lucky and lucky he was as he won the race and I won a cash prize of the best-groomed horse. Cathy and I were so excited at winning and received our prizes from the Crown Prince of Dubai. Soon afterwards Cathy brought me back to my hotel and at reception, my purse was waiting for me after someone had handed it in.
It turned out to be an amazing and exciting day.
