As promised, here’s the second section of pictures and videos of my trip to the United Arab Emirates, this time in Dubai.
Went out for a spin in the countryside
Nearly got killed
Ended up with the tyre coming of its rim, now where’s my AA recovery membership card gotten to?
Hooray…finally some culture at the UAE Heritage Village
And I think I may have killed a donkey…had to get out of there fast.
Before bumping into a local Emirati with a fierce looking pigeon
The Abu Dhabi skyline wasn’t too shabby.
And the sun didn’t disappoint once
Thought I’d see the local Masajid.
They couldn’t make it the biggest in the world though….
for obvious reasons…though I’m sure they could if they were allowed to
Escape the heat and into the cool
You call that a doorway?
Nice bit of objet d’art, hand carved by….
Yummy – giant sweeties
Mehrab – Point where the Salaat (prayer) is lead from
Don’t worry the light wasn’t going to fall on my head
Just in case I forgot where I was, a helicopter buzzed overhead with a giant flag
Had to do a touch of shopping
Seeing all the fish made me hungry
Getting lazy, thought I’d hitch a ride
Before driving home
Down the Metropolis of Sheikh Zayed road…and back to blighty where it gets dark at four and the temperature barely rises above zero….we came from the sun to live in the cold….why?
