A Final Weekend in Dubai, Our Sister City

With June our last month in the UAE, it was inevitable to start saying our goodbyes. One of the first “lasts” during our time here was a final weekend in Dubai. Catching up with great folks from NYU, visiting neighborhoods and eateries old and new, and even taking on a new adventure by spending our…

Brunch in Dubai – Perhaps Our Last in the Sister City?

After a slew of brunches upon our arrival to the UAE, we quieted things down a bit. As amazing as all-you-can-eat-and-drink fest can be, it takes away the rest of your day as you recover in a hazzy daze. But, with the pull of some great Edel-friends, we traveled to Dubai for what may be…

Going Old School in Dubai

Thanks to Sean, Brian’s colleague at NYUAD, and his wife – who have been in the UAE for many years, we saw a side of Dubai we’ve never experienced before…the old one. Old Dubai is a whole new world, and our foot travels through Dubai’s Museum, old souks and narrow neighborhood ways exposed us to…

Virtual Dubai at Your Fingertips

It appears that all those time-lapsed videos have been one-upped by a super cool virtual tour of Dubai (well, part of Dubai at least). This is the area of town that we hang out in most, as they are the closest neighborhoods to Abu Dhabi, and also near the location of Edelman’s Dubai office. Take…

A Day in Dubai

Along the lines of the cool Abu Dhabi video we shared many months back, here is a 24 hour time-lapsed video of Downtown Dubai, starting at 4am local time on 11/11/11, by photographer Gerald Donovan. I love how the Burj Khalifa just dwarfs everything else. And it’s not like those other buildings are short –…

Dreamy Dubai Birthday

No rest for the weary, when it came to birthday weekends. With our birthdays only 10 days apart, we tend to “celebrate” a lot this time of year. On Megan’s birthday, we enjoyed a nice meal at a great Italian restaurant. And this past weekend, we stayed closer to home – going to Dubai –…

Taking the Train to Dubai

Sorry for the delay in postings – it’s been busy, busy, busy! One of the more memorable moments from February came with a trip to Dubai for Jazzfest – which, oddly, didn’t have a ton of jazz acts as the three-day festival continued on. It was still a great time with our favorite live band…

The Pohorylos go to Dubai

To sum up Dubai in a single post is difficult, but at least you’ll get a flavor of our adventures. The sun finally came out for good as we hit the road for an hour and fifteen minute trek to Dubai. We went up the tallest building in the world, from the largest mall in…

Dubai!!

Except for being 15 minutes late to the staff meeting on her first day, Megan’s job has been going well. (She has since adjusted her departure time to account for the traffic!) With the commuting hiccup worked out, she hit the ground running. She put in some long hours preparing for this week’s client event…
