We also saw the world tallest building the Burj Khalifa and spent a long time in the hot sunshine trying to fit it into a photo! When we arrived back at the hotel we were shattered, so went up to our room for a quick nap at 6pm before dinner....we woke up at 6am... opps we must have needed a very long sleep! On Friday we spent a lovely morning ...
... so we grabbed some comfy chairs and waited for the plane. I love airports and the only thing that was frustrating was the wifi connection, it kept dropping out, but this seems a recurring theme for our trip.
