I hope everyone had a nice NYE! Scotch and I had planned on doing the same thing we did last year (dinner at home then off to the beach in front of our JBR apartment to watch the fireworks). But since Sheikh Mohammed cancelled all NYE’s fireworks celebrations in Dubai (yes, all), we just stayed in and drank ourselves silly with a few friends.
Anyway, Dubai was soooo foggy that any fireworks display would be rather obscured and difficult to see.
You can read the article here and below is a little snippet:
“Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has ordered the cancellation of all New Year celebrations in Dubai in support of the people of Gaza.”
