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.
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?
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.
Dubai looks like a play town from up there.
The “thing”. Had to take 4 images with a 28mm on full frame. Yeah.
Dubai Marina. Artificially built lagune. Ridiculous.
We then had the chance to go into the desert. Leaving air out of the wheels.
Great colors once we were in it.
Somebody rode through the desert on horses.
Pretty iconic I think.
Meeting up with other “tourists”.
Flat bread (yes, that means Fladenbrot). Probably the best I ever ate.
Sunset. Amazing colors and amazing serenity….
Thanks for watching. Hope you enjoyed it. Def a wonderful travel experience.
