Stepping outside, you see the landscape around you.
I’m about to arrive in
Dubai, aMer a week of
traveling. I’ve seen so
much of the world in just
this one trip. Over the last
week I was able to become
accustomed to the ways of
Dubai, and even learn
I met many friends during my stay
on board. We shared stories and
made plans to explore together.
AMer dinner I got on the overnight ﬂight to New
York. I arrived 30 minutes before departure,
checked into my cabin and ﬁnished some last
minute work before going to bed.
I arrived in the morning refreshed
and ready for the big mee6ng.
