After a wonderful Boeing 787 flight on AC56 (in J we're happy to say) we landed in Dubai and sailed through customs, baggage, duty free with ten bottles of wine, and a taxi to Movenpick Jumeirah Beach Hotel. Every male or female service person treated us with extraordinary kindness, respect and dignity. This vacation has gotten off perfectly and after a good night's rest we breakfasted in a nice little outdoor restaurant a few blocks from the hotel. Everyone has suggested that a Hop on Hop off bus as the start - something we usually do in most cities.
Today's ride features Dubai's Skyscrapers of which I hope my Apple 8's camera will do justice to this phenom all started just a few years ago and continues to flourish. You'll see a few cranes here and there.

Simply amazing Gary and Terryl! Was that your lime green hot rod Gary?! I've been busy with Ross Pettys Panto theatre show and have to catch up on the start of your trip.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear the trip over went off without a hitch. Is it all *just* skyscrapers in Dubai? Any hint of what was there before this construction boom (if there was anything)?ReplyDelete
