Notable mention must go to the Burj Al Arab which is the 7star hotel out in the water. It is a magnificent building designed ...
... drinks at the hotel they are getting married at so we headed over at 5pm. The dress code for tonight said 'casual' so off we trotted in our flip flops. We soon discovered that casual in Dubai does not mean casual. We were the only people there in flip flops and Pete was the only person there in a t-shirt and shorts! Not that he is any choice to wear anything else but everyone else was in chinos and shirts or even suits!! How is ...
