We were talking the other day about how small the world is (hah!) and along that topic we found ourselves starting to realize just how many different nationalities we have amongst our group… I thought I’d share:
There are a few other nationalities but these people fall slightly out of my personal extended group of friends and so I’m not entirely certain of where they are from so have rather left them out.
We’ve been having some seriously yuck weather out here lately – pretty chilly, windy, sandstorms etc. I missed one of the BIG sandstorms over the weekend of 28th / 29th Jan because I was chilling at home and my house faces the wrong way!

Some news making headlines recently is that Dubai has just had its’ first execution since 2008 which is also the first death penalty since 2001.
Here are 2 links to different news stories about the execution.
The executed man murdered a 4 year old boy in November 2010 in a mosque.
We had our first brunch of the year at a venue that we’d never been to before – and were certainly not disappointed! It was at Atlantis and so on arrival we took a quick detour past the aquarium and I snapped a few pics of the fishies.
