You may note from my expression that I look a little concerned. You may also notice a dark mark on my otherwise pristine white shirt.

One peculiar thing I have found about Dubai is that no one seems to be able to make a social engagement last fewer than about five hours, which suits me perfectly. Tipsy and talkative is a look I wear well at the best of times, and given free rein, I am pretty sure by the end of this month I will have become a bonafide lady who lunches. All that’s missing is the Chanel suit.
