Well after the coolness of Europe I reached the frenetic and boiling hot Dubai for a quick two day stopover before heading home. I had booked a group tour, so on my first day their I headed off on a Desert Safari. It started off with some 4 by 4 desert bashing which was great, it involed a trip to some stinky camels, and ended up in the middle of a test at a bedouin barbeque with belly dancers, henna and sand snowboarding -all in all a top afternoon.
The next day I wandered around the Gold Souq, and spent a few hours doing last minute shopping at the Deira City Centre Mall for the rest of the afternoon, before heading out to the airport for an evening flight. A few hours later I was on my final flight, back home to loved ones and reality, and I was sad for it to be all over.
