Greetings from United Arab Emirates! A quick 45 minute flight from Qatar and I arrived in the UAE. I spent a few very exciting -- and then highly relaxing -- days in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. A study in contrasts, Abu Dhabi is serene and reserved while Dubai is like Las Vegas on overdrive. Tradition versus the modern, yet both meeting at the point of pure decadence. Here are a few pictures.
