Dubai’s Sheikh Mo goes shopping

Talk about being in the right place at the right time!

It has been my dream, since moving to Dubai six years ago, to have the privilege of a chance encounter with UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He is often seen around town, in a restaurant, in a mall, or on one of Dubai’s road.

Known affectionately as Sheikh Mo, this picture was posted on the I Love Dubai facebook page with the following message:

HH Sheikh Mohammed was seen by someone, who took this pic, when he walked into a hypermarket, checked out vegetables, meat and a few other things and then left.

The fact that this man can walk around by himself, with NO SECURITY, NO SECRET SERVICE says a lot about him. When you are a ruler/politician and you are able to do this, you know YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING RIGHT.

Indeed… and that’s why I love Dubai!
