Back from Dubai

We just got back from Dubai. We had a very relaxing time. It was a strange time to go because it was the end of Ramadan and because Sheik Zeyad recently passed away but we were still able to enjoy boat rides on the creek, reading on the beach, drinking in public places and Sam even went parasailing. There were times where I felt like we were still on our vacation in Delhi but mostly it seemed like Kuwait with alcohol, skyscrapers and bigger shopping malls. The thing that struck me the most is that the city is a total construction mill. We were staying outside of town where there were just a few big hotels on the beach, but now there are about 25 huge buildings going up simultaneously. It put the construction project next to our apartment building here in Kuwait to shame.

I'll get more pictures up soon, this one is the view from our hotel room.
