United Arab Emirates - home sweet home
This world is so small, as a dear friend once wrote about love. Now, it strucks me that it is really true in so many ways. I have only been home about a month and during this time I have moved into a property owned by ADIA Abu Dhabi Investment Authority) in Stockholm Sweden. This is the only property, or block, owned by AIDA in Sweden as they bought Sturegallerian AB many years back.
During my long vacations in UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi) I have had the privilage to meet both members from the Al Nahyan and Al Maktoum families at for example Polo Tournaments and Forumla 1. To my experience, and as I know many emirates investors, they do have a special sense of business for real estate and at the very highest level. Although, they would be truly disappointed of what the responsible company in Sweden has done to this cultural building from the early 19th century that I have an apartment in. I do think it must be the worse kept property in all Sweden. Bad PR for a country I love so much, even though I am absolutely sure the owners know nothing about this, yet!
Well my family is working hard now to get things in motion and working endlessly to force a restoration of this highly protected cultural property and I am sure everything will be fixed, sooner or later :) I feel I live in my home from home in some way, as I miss UAE and all my wonderful friends living there and ofc the magic sunsets! xoxo
