The headquarters of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) on The Corniche is a landmark in Abu Dhabi.
It’s also where I toiled (figuratively speaking) for the last ten years of my working life, the final part of which was spent in an office on the inner side of the left hand tower, somewhere near the bottom of this image. It was on the 23rd floor, so from ground level you’d certainly have to look upwards.

At the turn of a decade, Frank has chosen the theme of ‘Retrospective’ for his challenge this week.
Ten years ago, we were living in Abu Dhabi and our daughter and her family – including our then two years old twin grandsons – were memorably with us for the Christmas holiday. One day we took them to the water park in the Corniche gardens, where they had great fun getting soaking wet.
