The Waldorf Astoria and a birthday dinner…Echoes of my neighbourhood 18

On Thursday’s, I share pictures about ‘Echos of my Neighbourhood.

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.

Every Thursday, share a photo of bits and pieces of wherever you are at any point in time. It could be a house, backgrounds of your neighbourhood, activities and so forth and you can tag it Echos of my Neighbourhood, add my link to your post so that I will get the ping from your post.

Every other Thursday, I will publish a post with the links of all those who participated the previous week.

This is just a fun way of getting to see more of the World around us through your eyes since we cannot all be at those places, we could, at least, see them through you.

A birthday in the family is a good excuse for a little treat, so my little man’s birthday gave us a good excuse for some good grill at Waldorf Astoria Dubai which is located on one of the fronds of the artificial Archipelago of The Palm Jumeirah.

The Waldorf Astoria is an exquisitely finished luxury hotel with lots of restaurants. We chose the Island grill where each seating canopy is positioned in water The ambiance is fabulous and it was a good treat. The food is great, but my opinion is that the service was a bit too fussy for hungry people.

I am not one to have the waiter hovering over my shoulder all evening, but all in all, it was worth it.

Last Week Echoes took us to different neighbourhoods, hop on let’s go see and we will be glad to see some of yours.

Such a lovely day: A beautiful day in Bavaria like the title says. Now I want a Tortoise in my garden 🙂

Gorgeous Gardenias and more Have you ever watched a minute-by-minute unfurling of beautiful gardenia’s?

Blooming cherry blossoms  these would inspire a poet out of you 🙂


Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Out of the silent breath

Never leave me lonely

With words left unsaid

You walk away into the dark

Like a mist that melts away
