With my Sri Lankan holiday over, and a new wedding season around the corner. A week in Dubai was the perfect way to break up the long flight from Colombo to Toronto, visit a few friends and check out what all the fuss is about in this modern metropolis/shopping mecca in the desert. Little did I know that the inquiry I had just received for a wedding in Toronto was from a couple that just happened to be in Dubai the same week as me! Aneal lives and works in Dubai, his fiancé Christine lives in Toronto, and was in Dubai for a visit. Both of their families are from Guyana and they grew up in Canada, friends from a very young age! Sounds like a typical Canadian Love story! ;>)
We met, chatted and then it all just came together, an impromtu photo session, featuring some of Dubai’s infamous architectural highlights, and to my surprise A Canadian Icon! Tim Hortons! After craving a good cup of coffee for 6 weeks in Sri Lanka (tea country) I was pleasantly surprised to find this little piece of home right here in Dubai! It was a fun day out with my fellow Canadians!
