Passion for Fountains

Lights, water, music, fountains…. your thoughts would travel to a place called Las Vegas, but no darling we are still in Dubai where everything has to do with the greatest this, and the tallest that, and…we want to be the number one destination to attract tourists to experience the modern wonders of the world. Yes, this might be true but apparently this country is doing something right to keep its tourism numbers coming. Well enough said about the tourism numbers, infrastructure and the growth plans of the Ministry of Tourism. I have taken a few shots of the remarkable water fountain show that takes place every half an hour and it is a great experience. I have not visited Las Vegas yet but I have heard of the Fountains of Bellagio which were designed to trigger the romantic senses and to entertain its guests during their visit to the City of Light.

My dear friends, being the great hosts that they are took us for a wonderful dinner to a Lebanese restaurant called Adbel Wahab where you can get an amazing view of the fountains and the Burj Khalifa, which is the tallest building in the world. Second time in Dubai and I have not gotten myself to get to the top, oh well I must definitely plan this for my next visit. Finally before I wave goodbye I have to tell you the story of the belt that I was wearing. My mum had bought it on our trip to Paris in 1992, and I recall being so mad at her for buying a belt that cost over 700 French Francs which in my childish imagination would equal to buying a big Minnie and Mickey Mouse toys for my collection. Back in the days I was not inspired by Louis Vuitton or Chanel or anything that had to do with Haute Couture. The Disney Collection was my greatest obsession of all times, but the memories 20 years down the lane still remain. Conclusion du jour, childhood memories are to be cherished. Until next time, enjoy! xoxo ES
