Curiosity killed the cat! But here, curiosity leads the kids to stamp their passports. And of course, with permission! Isobel, 9, and Charles, 6 were the two lucky kids that arrived in Dubai on Tuesday. They immediately became interested in what the passport check agents were doing at their desks. A senior officer met the kids and took them into the immigration screening cabin while standing next to their parents.
