Dubai Skyscapers December 11, 2019

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.

  2. 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)?
