As we were walking in the museum we saw an extended family from Dubai - two brothers with their wives and children, their sister and their mother. The ladies were dressed in black Abayas and, watching them, we wondered how different their lives were from ours. A little later, we saw the three younger ladies talking together and my wife asked them if they could take a photo together. They graciously consented. Later that evening, after supper, we saw one of the couples in the Old Town area. They invited us to their hotel. We were joined by the other couple and spent an hour talking with them about their lives in Dubai and our lives in California. It was a wonderful travel experience.
