Had a good night's rest and were awake early again as per usual. Breakfast was served early as well so we could go down for that. We could not believe our eyes, they call it a buffet but it was more of a banquet. If you could not find anything there to please the tastebuds than it simply does not exist. No complaints re our accommodation , service or food. A1 for everything. Went for a walk after breakfast and looked at the local shops. Very different to look at but also interesting.
We were picked up at the hotel at 11.15am for our drive to the airport.We have surely been treated like VIP's during our stay in Dubai.The airport is something to be seen and I will post some photo's of this on our return journey.
We flew to Heatrow in a Airbus A380, and had a very smooth trip. Of course the highlight of the day was Rick meeting his brother again for the first time in 47 years and all went as expected. Graham was waiting for us at the airport, it was so good to see Rick and Graham together after all that time. Very special moment.
Drove to Graham's home where Carol had dinner waiting for us. The after dinner conversation lasted till 1.30am and you can imagine all the " do you remember"s that cropped up. Lots of laughs.
A big day but so very very special. Looking forward to tomorrow.

You are quite right Willie - after 47 years it was a special moment to see Richard and yourself and there have been lots of special moments since you arrived.
