Well I made it thru the Eid festival on my own. My co-worker had a large family gathering in Sri Lanka, so he has been gone the past few days. I was able to find all sorts of things to do and see during the Eid celebration.
It was back to work today (Wednesday)…..not sure if I can work two whole days before I will need the weekend to break things up. Just have to wait and see if my system can take a full work week next week. I did stumble across a shop today that might make the work week go a little smoother. I was wandering around the neighborhood near my office and discovered that we have a Krispy Creme donut shop within easy walking distance. Since we do not have nearby Starbucks close by I will have to frequent the KC shop a little more now.
So far I think the only USA food restaurants that we do not have in Dubai are: Skyline Chili, Steak/Shake and In/Out Burgers. I will make it my mission to search this out and get back with you.
