Expo 2020 Dubai — running from October 2020 to April 2021 — is conscious of the fact, and this week released details of its legacy plan at real estate industry event Cityscape Global 2017. Dubbed “District 2020,” the area which the expo occupies in Dubai South will undergo extensive redevelopments before reopening in October 2021 — not long after the expo closes in April that year.

Some buildings will remain unchanged, including the Santiago Calatrava-designed UAE National Pavilion, modeled on the wings of a falcon. Others will be transformed on the inside: The Sustainability Pavilion, for instance, will live on as a center for child and scientific education. The Dubai World Trade Center Conference and Exhibition Center will also remain once the expo closes.

A SUMPTUOUS AFTERNOON IN DUBAI
ESPERANZA AUBERGER RESORT
Traveling for the weekend for a relaxing time, to get out of the routine and calm the mind, there is nothing like an escapade to Los Cabos in Mexico.
LOS CABOS MEXICO, LA MARINA
Short vacation, but peaceful if you choose to. Remember that Cabos has many places for tourists who go there to party. I choose to stay away from those areas since I want silence, plenty of comfort and peace.
OUR PRIVATE POOL
This time we stayed at the Esperanza Auberge Resort, snorkeled and laid down on the warm ethereal beach.
TRAVEL TO GERMANY
It is time for me to get ready to travel to Berlin, Germany this year, to attend to one of my annual Global Medical Events, medical conferences and symposiums I faithfully go every year, to continue to learn, to explore science and grow as a physician for the benefit of my patients.
Once the conference ends it is time for fun: going to the opera is a must, travel Germany, bicycling, eating the food. Just enchanting!
BERLIN STATE OPERA HOUSE – GERMANY
Germany is a beautiful seductive country, and one place I have to go whenever I visit is Bavaria. I am IN LOVE with Bavaria. I have family living there who are wonderful hosts to all of us who go.
AUTHENTIC PICHELSTEINER BAVARIAN STEW
The distance between Berlin and Bavaria is more or less 500 km, that will be about 5 to 6 hours driving an automobile. Leipzig is a place to stop to enjoy some food. In Bavaria for example pork is very dominant but further in North Germany (Hamburg, Kiel) you should not miss out on the awesome fish dishes they have.
BRATWURST SLIDERS WITH BEER CHEESE AND BRAISED ONIONS
BAVARIAN SCHWEINSHAXE … MY FAVORITE!
I savor weissewurst, schweinhaxen, spaetzle, saurkraut, The weisswurst breakfast is just wonderful, pretzels and all. For desserts, I relish the germknodel, where poppy seeds have their heyday. Everything is out of this world!
Swimming pools make the body, mind and soul rejoice of beauty, in nature, man-made, in tropical or snowy environments, or indoors. An indoor swimming pool with the right architecture surrounding it, can bring the most pleasure to your life.
When you love swimming pools building your own in your own property is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself.
COME HOME AND JUMP IN….RELAX!
