Saturday, February 20th, 2010: Goodbye Dubai

Goodbye, Dubai

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

A good friend had been living in Dubai for almost ten years with his wife and daughter. Every few years I would come over to visit and we would capitalize upon this base to explore something beyond the city on steroids. Had a day to catch up with everyone and check out some of the latest attractions – Mark and I hit the slopes at Ski Dubai and rendezvoused with my buddy John, who had also ventured over to join the expedition to Oman, by the Bhurj Khalifa. At this time the Bhurj had just opened, but unfortunately the viewing deck mysteriously closed just prior to our arrival, so we could only look up to its fantastic heights.

Regardless, the stage was set and it would be off to Oman tomorrow.

Not an everyday sight on the slopes!

First time for downhill in fifteen years thanks to Ski Dubai!

Burj Khalifa - world's tallest building (but observation deck closed when I was there)
