So it has been a while since my last post....sorry.
But here is an update on what I have been up too the last little while
Since it is so hot in Abu Dhabi in the summer months the city has started an Abu Dhabi Summer of Fun which they took the Abu Dhabi convention center and turned it into an INDOOR center for extreme fun.
They had everything from a zip line, little roller coasters, bungee jumping to waking boarding and archery .... seriously so much fun stuff. It is mainly for kids, but who isn't a kid at heart.
This is Chris smoking the a 5 yr old girl up the rock climbing wall ...you are the man Chris ...that girl had nothing on you.
Gorka and Chris put on a show for everyone when they decided to step into the American Gladiator ring....so hilarious.
These are the head guys of the Date Festival and they decided to come a chat with us....I was too nervous to ask them for a picture so I just took one when they were walking away. I know really classy.
Some ladies weaving away in one of the booths, they are wearing full abadya which is the traditional Islamic dress.
We also took a nice weekend trip to Muscat, Oman.
We made some friends at the Shangri'la hotel and hung out there for a day....really nice.
We went to an old Souk (basically outside "mall") and melted as we walked through all the tiny corridors full of vendors.
We were able to break away and snap some sweet pictures.
So last weekend we went to Dubai to check out the town. The company I work for, DeSimone, is doing a small fit out in the lobby of the Burj Dubai (fyi that is the tallest building....in the world...2684 ft tall) and we were able to get pass to go into the Burj. The building is not yet complete so we felt super cool being able to go in before it is open to the public. It would have been cooler if we had got to go up to the 160th floor, but we had restricted passes and they were security guards every 5 ft. Since I was wearing a pink tee shirt, and Elizabeth and I were the only two girls who had probably set foot in there...ever .... "sneaking" up to the top wasn't really an option. The best pictures were from the outside anyways .... pretty impressive.
