Our weeklong break (due to Eid al-Adha) is concluding in few hours. I am glad that I decided not to travel outside the UAE and tried a combination of staycation + never tried stuff. Productivity and leisure rolled into one. I am happy, too, that I gave Abu Dhabi Grand Prix a go last minute and that the tickets “found me” just in time even if it was impossible to source out that hour. Watching a race up close was a new experience. At first, the engine’s roaring was so deafening, despite the ear protection provided to us upon entry to the designated grandstands. It was a thrilling experience. Congratulations to Sebastian Vettel, the youngest Formula One champion.
