President Bush arrived in Abu Dhabi today. In the picture above, he is being introduced by Ms. Aida Abdullah Al Azdi of the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research. He was giving a speech before an invitation-only crowd at the Emirates Palace Hotel. (M attended and took the pictures.)
In the picture above, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is shaking hands with a UAE dignitary after the president's speech.
I wrote this blog during my two years in Abu Dhabi, where I lived with my then-husband and six children, then ages 18 - 9 years old. I now teach English as a second language at a university near my home in New Hampshire, USA.
