Huzefa and I found this quaint little cafe with outdoor seating (at midnight, we've become owls) yesterday. We sat there all night laughing and drinking Moroccan tea. On the way back home (at 4 am in the morning, natch), we got pulled over by a cop car. Apparently I had made an illegal turn on the road (believe me, I had no clue it was illegal). We explained to him that I'd been driving in Bahrain before this and there was no sign saying I couldn't make that turn. After taking my licence and the car's ownership card, the cop said he would have to fine me. (my brother had warned me that the laws and cops in Dubai are really strict and I should NOT get into trouble with them. So this was really, really not good!) We pleaded with him that I really didn't know and it was a mistake. He went back to his car. He made us sweat for what seemed like ages, then came back and said, "Don't do it again. Go." and gave me back my cards. Whe-eeewww! And this morning when I spoke to someone about the incident, they said that the cops never let someone go like that and that I'm really lucky.

I know. I am.

Hope you didn't have a crazy Monday!
