In The Land of Serendip

To make a long story short, the word Serendip is based on the Arabic name for the island of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) where its people were fabled to always be happy... hence the birth of our English word serendipity.

So it was with pleasant surprise that I happened upon this photogenic walkway shaded by a canopy of umbrellas in Dubai's Miracle Garden.
