InterContinental Dubai Festival City
Travel Blogs from Dubai
... within Dubai including Dubai Mall, the world famous fountain show at the plaza, a Mosque, visited the Arabian coast, Atlantis Dubai on Palm Island, and of the course the local Starbucks. We saw the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, and took a river taxi ride along the Dubai creek. We also managed to survive exploring the world market. During our tour we discussed religion, royalty, riches, and of course the economy of Dubai (curtesy ...
... and didn't fall off, wahoo go me), yup that's right, I did it, I conquered my fear of not being able to get on and off the camel and did it anyway. Quite pleased with myself lol. I didn't smoke my face into the ground like I half expected haha. Finished the evening with some sheesha and had a little bit of a stargaze. Our truck was the last to leave which was pretty cool because we stayed and smoked sheesha with our driver lol. Best night ever..!! Day 3. Sweaty, messy day 3. ...

It is hard to imagine living in Dubai, where everything is built on sand and everyone lives in apartments. I would miss garden and space. On our drive into the desert the high apartment building just seem to continue on and on.
... the hardest part. Now I'm waiting for my long trek home, 14.5 hours to Seattle. Soon I'll be at home, in a bed with a soft pillow (not, what feels to be, a block of wood surrounded by hard foam).
I also have not had a coffee (besides trying one of their ****** 3 in 1's) since September 11th. First thing (after hugging my mom who is graciously picking me up at an ungodly hour) I'm getting a large Timmie's coffee!
... airport is. They certainly dont do things by halves here. Walked from one end to the other to kill time. You hear snatches of so many languages and accents walking around.
Oddly enough my brain still isn't accepting that by the end of the day I'll be in Russia. I'm sure it'll hit me soon enough though.
Still got 2 hours until the flight. Hoping my stomach calms down by then.
