Friday - - Editor’s Letter - Shreeja Ravin­dranathan, life­style writer

Set­ting my alarm clock at the week­end never hap­pens. But I was keen not to miss the last Farmers’ Mar­ket on the Ter­race in Busi­ness Bay. The mar­ket was bustling, the weather was hot so I headed to the lemonade stall. I picked some eggs and bread, which were so fresh and tasty, and some or­ganic aubergines. When I reached home I grilled the aubergines, toasted the bread and topped it with ar­ti­chokes and sun-dried toma­toes. De­li­cious! Mark Setch­field, art edi­tor Have you seen Abu Dhabi at 5.30am? You should. It’s worth the ef­fort of wak­ing up be­fore sun­rise, I learnt last week­end. It’s serene and sooth­ing to drive through sleepy cityscapes at dawn – with­out the rush, traf­fic and masses of hu­man­ity, it has an other-worldly qual­ity. The morn­ing light makes for great pic­tures, like this one I took of Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
