Oh, happy day, my friends. My eldest, who will be sweet 16 in June, has said she would like to spend a couple of weeks with me in the UAE during the summer....

I am the happiest of the pater unfamililias.....

Please, sugestions (decent, please Msr Le Dean) as to how best entertain a 16 yr old in the UAE?????????
