Breakfast booked three months in advance, first online booking, and then someone will email to confirm Ha! The spot cash payment is 120 dirhams, which is a bit expensive ____________ Breakfast begins at 10:00 in the morning. We'll be there at 9:30. Take pictures at the Charter shop! Breakfast is so heartfelt! I can't get used to eating and I don't have much to eat, but the communication process is good. Ha, I want to sleep after listening to English for more than an hour.
In Dubai, actual Emiratis seem to be like these legendary creatures--you see them from afar, but never really have a chance to interact with them. The SMCCU tries to rectify that a bit by hosting cultural breakfasts and lunches, where a real live Emirati discusses all kinds of cultural aspects and answers questions of all kinds--he even encourages dumb ones. If you get the same guy I did, he's a ham and a half, and has a great attitude. Plus, breakfast is yummy! That's another elusive thing--good Emirati food--so it's a treat to have some here.
The SMCC strives to promote cultural and religious understanding, and does an excellent job. They host tours of Jumeirah Mosque, which includes light refreshments and a question-and-answer period. I learned a lot about Islam and the Gulf culture because of their volunteers.
If you don't do your homework well, you'll have a chance to visit again when you come.
Although my understanding of Islam is not particularly thorough, I always feel some incomparable holiness when I come to such a building.
It's the same place as a museum and it's free. It's great to learn about the local culture.
