Yes, we're moving to a new apartment in Dubai.
Our new home is going to be radically different from where we currently are. It's on the 16th floor of a 39 floor building, which is one of approximately 79 high rise buildings, of which some are still coming up. So yes, we will finally experience what is the "real Dubai experience", living in a high-rise, living in the New Dubai area, and of course living with on-going construction. But we do get a bit of sea view, hopefully the sun will line up perfectly for us as it dips into the water.
I'm feeling all nostalgic since the past few days and will really miss this house. Change is good, I know, but this house has given us some wonderful times and I'll always hold it close to my heart. On the other hand, I'm really excited about getting to do up the house again, although I have no idea how long it will take, with little E keeping me busy most of the time.
Here are some of my fave shots from our current home!
goodbye morning walks around my park
goodbye finding a burst of flowers like these
goodbye finding modernity in old villas
goodbye neem leaves from the tree behind the house
goodbye gently blowing curtains and mango trees outside
goodbye everchanging patterns formed by the window grill
goodbye baby mangoes that I used to pick up after my morning walks
goodbye glorious light
goodbye collecting fallen dates from the trees outside
