38. Everybody ready? I am leaving for Dubai…

38. Everybody ready? I am leaving for Dubai.
I have invited along my daughter Cristiana with her partner Francesco and their son Gabriele who is now one year old – my wonderful grandson, my only grandson.

My daughter Rachele and my son Tommaso have blessed me with six granddaughters, as cute as cute can be and all females!
So Gabriele is the first new generation of Cavalli male although he has a different surname.

Gabriele slept the whole trip, five hours and a half.
After I take a great Spritz and several sleep drops and maybe I overdid it because I didn’t wake up until I felt the friction of the tires on the runway at Dubai.

It is not yet fully daylight, it’s seven and the sky is still red and about to turn into an intense azure!

The suites at the Royal Mirage Hotel welcome me with all their opulence!
A very nice apartment in a Hotel that extends east to a beautiful white sand beach!
I am making you dream? Perhaps a little envious?

Unfortunately, I do not know how much time I have to devote to myself.
Meeting with reporters all day will force me to smile, even when I do not feel like smiling!

Checking my appointments I found that I am free until tomorrow after which I will have to be a serious person and smile as required!

    Certo che la famiglia Cavalli è proprio numerosa… Penso sia una cosa molto bella!!
    Vedendo le foto da internet del Royal Mirage… Cavolo sembra di vivere davvero in un sogno!
    Oggi pensa solo a divertirti, rilassarti e magari fai un salto al Cavalli Club… So essere un locale molto bello ed alla moda!
    Per questa sera… Che peccato ma abbiamo già prenotato dall’Americano (McDonald’s)… A saperlo avrei fatto volentieri qualche Km in più per un tuo invito a cena 🙂 la prossima volta va bene?
    Ciao Roberto e buona fortuna per domani com tutti i giornalisti

    Mr. Cavalil I always get a bit envious when it comes to Dubai! It’s my dream city.. I wish I could visit it with you.. or at least on my own..
    Roberto your 60’s post has come out today and I’m still reading the 38th one.. so busy with my work this month.. wish i could go back to the time when i woke up in the morning and the first thing i did was reading your new post… Can’t stop saying that I’m truly blessed to be so close to you and your life Mr Cavalli.


    LOVE U

    Your #1 fan
