She's Here! (Day 4)
After making Caitlin come to work with me once again, she finally got a break when my former vice-principal and her husband showed her a little VIP treatment. They graciously dispatched their driver, who picked Caitlin up at school and then took her to the Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque.
While she was there, she took a tour, took a turn in the abaya and sheila, and took over 200 photos. Here are a few of the highlights:
Sheila-ed and abaya-ed up!

A chandelier in the main prayer hall
Archways and corridors
Women's prayer hall
The VIP treatment didn't stop there . . . The rest of the day involved the "Walk" at Jumeirah Beach Residences, Caitlin's all-time favorite burgers at the New Zealand "Burger Fuel" restaurant, ice cream, a trip to the Atlantis Hotel, and the start to a weekend at my vice principal's vacation house in Ras Al Khaimah.
