Any Ranches Ladies who are still in Dubai are welcome to meet on Tuesday mornings for coffee and chat at Larte Restaurant in Studio One Hotel, Studio City (across the roundabout from the back entrance of Arabian Ranches 1) from 10.30am – 12pm.

Get writing over the summer!

If you have time over the summer, please consider writing a short (200 to 300 words) article, with photos if possible, to be included in this newsletter when it returns. Maybe you could write about your summer travels, your Circle groups or any other topics you think would be of interest to other RL members.
