Dear Sultan,

Last night we went to your house for the Royal wedding of your nephew. We had such a wonderful time. I can’t believe that I got to enjoy the evening with the Royal family of UAE.

The food was simply out of this world. So many different dishes to choose from! My favorite was by-far the “goat on rice”.  I was shocked to see that we had a entire goat just the four people at my table. Wow! That was just so much food! It was delicious!

The entertainment for the night was delightful. I loved how the men and the women were separated in the yard. I looked over many times and watched the men in white robes dancing with canes. The live music was simply mesmerizing. And the women with the long hair on the stage were incredible, too. Their hair was so beautiful and flowing; but doesn’t it hurt their neck to whip their hair back and forth like that? haha.

I am so thrilled that I got to enjoy such authentic celebrations. Thank you so much for inviting me---I am so honored. I will treasure this memory forever!

Your English Teacher,
