December 28 -Dubai
Landed in Dubai at around 8:30pm, it has a 2 hour forward time zone difference. Met Ahmed's uncle Joe and saw my buddy Chris at the airport. The Airport itself is really clean and extravagant looking. Custom's and passport control was no issue and the people were all really friendly. Ahmed went with his uncle for dinner while I went with Chris. Ayman was also with Chris so all three of us went to the Marina area in Dubai. Ok, at this point I have to say that this city is exactly what I was thinking about. It's just amazing guys! Clean everywhere, the highways are all new and smooth, the buildings all have great architecture, it just "feels" awesome. We went to a coffee shop in the Marina area and had a drink and some shisha, just amazing and I still can't believe I'm here! After shisha and catching up Chris drove us around the city a bit and showed us the Sailboat Hotel, the tallest building in the world (HUGE!), and the Atlantis Hotel on one of the Palm islands. Simply incredible! We dropped off Ayman at his car and then went to Chris's place, which by the way is freaking awesome, right next to the DIFC (Dubai's Wall Street) and very close to the tallest building. Got to see Huda and Mona and finally went to bed around midnight or so. This is going to be fun!
