Burj al Arab Hotel -- Dubai9427 viewsPhotographed from the beach at the Madinat Jumeirah. The Burj al Arab -- Tower of the Arabs -- rises above the Arabian Sea, and was built to look like a sail. The right side of the hotel is made from Kevlar, the bullet-proof material. Look at the crowd on the beach.

Craig and Marjorie Before Dinner813 viewsI just held the camera out with one hand and pressed the shutter. My foot really hurt on this whole trip, but if we didn't take the trip ("bought" with British Airways miles) by December 1, we were told we'd lose it. So I took golf carts everywhere, or sat by the pool. Easy, peasy in Dubai.

Atrium of Burj al Arab Hotel4948 viewsPhotographed from the lower lobby, looking up through the fountains and the large gold columns. They love gold in the Burj al Arab!

Our Bedroom at the Burj al Arab -- Dubai335 viewsWith a spectacular view over the Arabian Sea. In the distance, they're constructing an artificial series of islands that will look like a palm tree. The palm tree can be seen from space. Nothing half-measure in Dubai.

Marjorie Enjoying a Mojito317 viewsWe had our first [url=http://www.bacardimojito.com/]mojito[/ul] cocktails in Havana, where they were invented. But the mojitos at the top of the Burj al Arab Hotel in Dubai were a close second.
