I spent last week in Dubai - work rather than play, but it is interesting to go somewhere new. And this part of the world is completely new to me - but given that the air flight lasted 16 hours (and felt like half a life time) I may not just go back for the weekend anytime soon!
Two words spring to mind about Dubai - "Hot" and "Tall". The temperatures were well into the 90's everyday - and more often than not broke the 100 barrier. Many of the buildings have a similar number of floors to the temperature!
A super wide angle lens would have been nice for some street shots - but I don't have one!
The building in the background of the last picture is the Burj Khalifa - the worlds tallest building, at 828 m tall. Incidentally, you can enter the Burj through the Dubai Mall - which (you've" guessed it) is the largest mall in the world. Dubai is that kind of place!
