Saturday in Dubai...
The Burj al Arab
Saturday morning we walked on the beach and got some nice photos of the Burj al Arab. Saturday afternoon, we drove to the Jumeirah Palm. I got some more nice shots of the Burj alJumeirah palm is a man-made set of islands that look like a palm leaf from the air. We parked and walked around the Atlantis hotel. I imagine most of the people were like us, just there to walk around and not stay in the hotel. We stopped for some more photo ops. Arab from across the sea. The
