Dubai June 14


An unexpected 10 hour layover. What can I say -- the hotel is next to the gigantic Dubai Mall, where people wander around aimlessly just like in American malls. It is funny to see Arab families in full regalia eating cheese pizza next to an ice rink.

I got up and had a swim in the hotel pool, which has a view of the Burj Dubai..the world's tallest building, and the the world's largest "dancing waters" fountain, complete with heavenly chorus soundtrack

Here's a picture from the mall -- their main "waterfall" water feature
