Our Last Weekend in Dubai

As I walk along familiar streets that have transformed in 12 years, the once busy Sheikh Zayed Road that is even much busier now and more filled with skyscrapers, Deira,  Jumeirah and the beach, I felt nostalgic and slightly emotional. I could hardly believe that this was my last weekend in Dubai, in the city that I have called home for a significant period of time.

Remember when I mentioned last year how sad it felt watching friends turned families go and being left behind? I daresay it also feels as much being on the other side. Here are snapshots of how our last weekend was like.

Emirates Towers which holds a lot of memories for us
Hummos with Shawarma Chicken
Garlic Chicken Wrap
Zaroob- Best Arabic Restaurant on Sheikh Zayed Road

You'll have to try the Metro.  I started my life here with no trains, just buses and taxis

Deira , The area where I first lived in Dubai, our old flat was very close to this street
