The last couple of days have been spent mostly indoors, playing with the kids and with PCs. Network troubleshooting, operating system reinstallations, and games, mostly Civilization III (Civ3). Tonight, however, we got out to the Bateux Dubai, an evening dinner cruise along Dubai Creek, past the neon skyscrapers, while dhows and abras (river taxis) sped past us. Excellent food too, and while there was “live music”, it was quite laid-back and not intrusive. (If music is supposed to enhance our experience of life, why is it often forced on us in totally inappropriate situations?)
