More photos of Dubai, with even more sure to follow, many from the Dubai Mall and the surrounding attractions. We ate breakfast one morning at Granny's Waffles next to the waterfall.

Visited Dubai in the United Arab Emirates for a few days with Carl before Christmas. Both of us really enjoyed the Dubai Mall and the associated sights, which is sort of surprising if you know us. I'll post more photos at some point. We got home in time on Christmas Eve to put up and decorate the tree, make a nice dinner etc.

Sana'a, is unlike the cities in the Gulf region on so many levels. First, it is old...real old, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world (Old Town Sana'a earns a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List), a world away from Kuwait City, Dubai etc. It is also much poorer. And most of all, the people are easily the friendliest in the region, if not the friendliest people in the world. I recently finished...well mostly finished, going through photos I've taken there and added them to the SLIDESHOW menu on the right side of the page. None of the photos are captioned yet, and I still have a few that I'll eventually add, but that may be a while. Below is a small sampling, the complete slideshow can be seen HERE.

I can't afford the expensive actors so people are poaching my brand. I'm trying to defend it as much as possible, Arabic sub-titles, and the best actor I can afford, a Corvette. I even had a stunt man sans seat-belt go up and over the airbag...
