Such opulence. Wish I could afford to stay there.

@Steve Rice: I agree. But a visit for lunch was experience enough. Thank you, Steve.
A gracious and lovely lady. Opulence is a good word for this. I think I would feel more comfortable in a 4 star homey place though.

@dj.tigersprout: Many thanks for the great comment, Jaycee.
Ohhhhhh, I'm thrilled you are taking us inside, Michael. Looking at her regal attire causes me to wonder where this lady might live, and how she feels, surrounded by such opulence.

@Judy: She would probably live somewhere in workers' quarters or possibly in the town of Abu Dhabi. There will be at least two more photos in this series. many thanks, Judy.
A beautiful picture of a beautiful girl! Wonderful dress!

About the photo: sensible use of flash.
