Last Friday, I hitched a ride out to Ghantoot Polo Club to attend the Pink Polo Match; an event designed to increase breast cancer awareness. It was an absolutely perfect afternoon, not too hot with a bit of a breeze. After getting a bite and doing some abaya shopping, I settled down at the edge of the field, on a bright pink bean bag and enjoyed the festivities. Reclining there, surrounded by green grass, flowering trees, and beautiful horses, I left the desert behind and was transported for a few hours to someplace reminiscent of home.
