Dreamy Dubai

Wow. Wow. And more wows.

Dubai is NUTS!

Will keep this one short seeing we are paying 20Euros for hotel internet connection. YEOUCH!

We left France on Friday morning. Au revoir! Touched down in Dubai yesterday. Here for 2 nights, 3 days in an attempt to break up the long flight back to Australia.

Happy to report that Sticky Baby did reasonable well on the Paris-Dubai leg. Papadada and I each have 5 to 10 new grey hairs, as opposed to the fistful we developed the last time we flew....

Dubai is jaw-droppingly opulent. We have never seen as many luxury 4WD vehicles, period. And the newly opened Dubai Mall? RIDONCULOUS! An aquarium and underwater zoo in a shopping complex? Sticky Baby was truly impressed. He pashed every single glass enclosure, trying to get a closer look at the stingrays and colourful nemo fish. And then he nearly poked a penguin in the eye (ok, so this happened while I was longingly looking across at the enormous ZARA shop. Oops. But, can you blame a girl? My apologies, dear penguin).

Today, we are heading out to the world famous Atlantis, The Palm resort. Apparently it’s a must-see.

More details to come....
