New friends, gardens, beehives, and barbecues

After visiting an Emerati home this afternoon, sipping coffee and chai tea, eating dates, guava, and sfenji (donuts sprinkled with sesame seeds and soaked/dipped in honey), our host showed us his herb and vegetable gardens, his pomegranate, guava, and lemon trees, and his beehives. We left with hands full of fruit and an invitation to return for a barbecue before my visit to the UAE ends.
