In the midst of the hussle bussle of Dubai, there are spaces that are peaceful and tranquil. Green Community, where John was staying last year, is one of those places. It is off the usual tourist path, so of course our driver decided the only word that mattered was "green" and that in turn meant "golf course", so he drove us to the community that was built around a golf course!
Lovely, but not the Green Community we were after. After a couple of false starts and energetic phone conversations (all while driving, naturally), we found the right place.
