We were told that a van would pick us up from Al Ghurair Centre at 3pm on the 13th of April but we arrived 30 minutes late because of traffic. Fortunately the driver was very patient and understanding, waiting for us and promptly driving up to where we were standing as soon as I called to inform him we had arrived.
Despite the twists, turns and bumpy rides over the dunes, the people we were riding with were just quiet. My brother and I would laugh in delight whenever the driver would take us up and down the sands, but there was no reaction from the others. Either they were bored or their expectations were too high. Oh well.
