Burj al Arab Hotel274 viewsThe Burj al Arab Hotel -- Tower of the Arabs -- rises above the Madinat Jumeirah. We spent our first night in Dubai at the Burj al Arab, and then spent three nights in a villa suite in Dar Al Masyaf, part of the Madinat Jumeirah. (I found this part confusing, too.)
camel-parade.jpg
Camel Parade Number 15625 viewsA bit like the Cow Parade that we saw in New York City. The Dar Al Masyaf had many camels throughout the gardens, all painted with a different theme. This camel has a Dubai theme.

Marjorie in the Garden2549 viewsA date palm garden in an inner courtyard at the Bab Al Shams Hotel, in the desert in Dubai.

A Fire Pit in the Bab al Shams Hotel1565 viewsIt gets cold on the desert at night, so the Bab Al Shams Hotel had this large fire pit that they lit every evening. Marjorie is relaxing on the right, a bit like Rousseau's Sleeping Gypsy.

The View from Our Boat Stop170 viewsDar Al Masyaf villas in Dubai. We moved from one place to another in the small boats.

Marjorie Waiting for the Boat199 viewsOur boat stop at the Dar Al Masyaf hotel. This was very close to the room, so I could hobble to it and jump on a boat. The boat would take us to virtually anywhere in the resort. What a way to commute.

Fruit and Veg -- Dubai Style2752 viewsThis huge display of fresh fruit and veg was at the entrance to the desert restaurant -- built to look like an old fort -- at the Bab al Shams Hotel.

Burj al Arab Hotel162 viewsWith the Madinat Jumeirah "souk" to the right. This isn't a souk like the traditional souks in Istanbul and Aman, but isn't a shopping centre either. It's quite spectacular.
chandelier.jpg
Al Quasr Hotel Lobby444 viewsPart (confusingly) of the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel. This huge chandelier was very impressive -- it looked almost like a space ship.

Craig Exploring Dubai139 viewsWith my painful foot, most of my travel in Dubai was motorised. What an old man!
