Dubai

Before all pictures just rotten on my hard drive, I’ll do better do another post. You know you plan a long trip to the other side of the world and you know that you have to change planes somewhere in the middle, it is always this question if you should stay at that point a bit longer. I had no particual interest in Dubai whatoever, but who knows when I will visit this unusual place at all? So, here I was… in Dubai.

It was a kind of weird thing to start in the old part of the city, as there is not really any old part. But around the “natural” creek, there was actually something that looked like an older part of Dubai.

Went on a boat to cross the river. It was actually unbelievable cheap…

The first mosque we saw. And no women at all.

As you can see, no women.

Quite beautiful architecture.

A some of the smaller streets. But they actually renovated so much that it looks like they rebuilt the whole old city.

At the spice market “Al Souk” on the nothern bank of the Dubai Creek.

Said “hi”….

Definitely worth a visit is the fish market (Deira). I wish I could have bought some of the wonderful fishes they offered me. But where should I have cooked it?

Dates everywhere…

The rather small entry of the market.

From now on, it’s the “yeah, that is Dubai”-pictures…

From the earth to the sky, as it is marked just before the ridiculous fast elevator. Burj Khalifa.

20130309_Dubai_2663

Dubai looks like a play town from up there.

The “thing”. Had to take 4 images with a 28mm on full frame. Yeah.

20130309_Dubai_2708

Dubai Marina. Artificially built lagune. Ridiculous.

20130309_Dubai_2726

Jumeirah Beach.

We then had the chance to go into the desert. Leaving air out of the wheels.

20130308_Dubai_2935

Great colors once we were in it.

Somebody rode through the desert on horses.

20130308_Dubai_2962

Pretty iconic I think.

Meeting up with other “tourists”.

Flat bread (yes, that means Fladenbrot). Probably the best I ever ate.

20130308_Dubai_3026

Desert dinner.

20130308_Dubai_3020

Sunset. Amazing colors and amazing serenity….
