Howdy everyone? How'ya all doing? I hope everyone is doing good. Am I dreaming? Nope! Yeah, my self-imposed blogging break is over. I am finally back in the blogosphere. To compensate for my loonggggggggg absence, I will post more photos today. Let me continue my story about our adventure in Al Dhafra Festival organized by Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority last December 2011.
It was one foggy and windy Monday morning when we left Al Ain City and headed to central Abu Dhabi. I was a bit worried and hesitant to travel since hubby was not around. We had to take the public transportation all the way from Al Ain to Madinat Zayed. My hesitation grew even more when I saw that the visibility on the road was significantly reduced, knowing the "driving habits" of the motorists here in the UAE. Since we were all excited about our trip, I just shrugged my shoulders and took a deep breath and filled my lungs with cool and fresh air. We simply ignored the weather and off we went to Al Ain Bus station at 07:20 AM.

As soon as we stepped out of the taxi, we all realized that we were late for the 07:30 AM bus and we had to wait for another bus. An employee told us to wait inside the designated waiting station. We were sitting for about 25 minutes when JM and Joel started to complain. Kids became impatient as the clock started ticking.

To divert their attention, I asked them to buy some food to munch while I was busy taking pictures of this cute critter :))
After 15 more minutes, I, too became impatient. We decided to take a cab for rent along with the other 2 passengers and headed to Abu Dhabi without even thinking of the risk. At exactly 10:15 AM, we arrived safely at Abu Dhabi Bus Station and our journey to Madinat Zayed has begun.
