Dubai Day 2 – From the Desert to the Skyscraper


Grilled chicken, soup and naan bread at Aden Yemenis Restaurant

This circle and etching in glass lines up to show where the observation deck is on the Burj Khalif

Inside the Burj Khalif witht he Persian Gulf behind me

A view from the worlds tallest observation deck (124th floor, 1,450ft)

A look from the 124th floor to the 160th ( 2,717ft)

I chose to eat on the floor over the tables and my ankles did not appreciate it

The Falcon is no longer used out of necessity for hunting in the desert but is a major symbol for the U.A.E like the Bald Eagle is for America

A fresh coconut juice break on the way to the desert safari

This is just wrong

The long day ended with a buffet and belly dancing in the middle of the desert
