I'd love to see a few pics of your new digs.
Dave you should know better than to encourage me....
We arrived in Dubai one month ago today. Never been there before but now it's home. Went into temporary accommodation in the Marina District, only a few blocks from the office. Our first ever taste of "downtown" living. I must say it was a contrast to the suburbs of Zambia....
Marina District by night. We are staying in the building on the LHS of the bridge, the one with the vertical white swoosh.
On the second night we hosted a mate of mine from Australia who was passing through Dubai and knows the place well. He suggested we go to the Rivington Restaurant at the Dubai Mall because it had a great view of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. Actually, at 829.2m (2,720') it is the world's tallest artificial anything. It's difficult to get into a single frame.
And if that wasn't impressive enough, each night it shows off.... Here it is one of its MANY show pony moments:
Dave, you asked to see a pic of the new digs. Well, we've signed up for a place at the head of the Marina; to the centre top right of the night time shot above. We move in on Wednesday and you can bet that after a day of unpacking we will be enjoying a GnT on the balcony checking out the view:
