My First Impressions of Dubai in Pictures

By  | 

I just wrapped up an amazing week in Dubai, which I enjoyed far more than I dreamed. Part of that might be because I spent most of the time out in the desert at Al Maha Resort. I’ve never experienced a desert quite like it and taxed even my best friend’s patience exclaiming incessantly that “I’ve never seen anything like this!”

More reports to come, but in the meantime I can let the pictures speak for themselves.

When it #rains in #Dubai, it pours!
