So Cool

I arrived back in Istanbul early this morning and thought I would post a little bit more about my trip to Dubai before returning to our regularly scheduled programming. First is a gorgeous picture of the Burj Khalifa at sunset.

You can tell from this picture, which is the view from Amy's house, that the Burj Khalifa completely dwarfs every other building to the point where the sun still shines on it after the sun has set on the other buildings in the skyline.

On Christmas Day, Amy and her mom and I went to the Dubai Mall to see The Dubai Fountain, which  was built by the same company that designed the fountain in front of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. We scored a great table overlooking the fountain and...

Just so you know, they have a wide range of music that the fountain "dances" to. The song after this was the theme song to The Magnificent Seven. Anyway, I had a great break from Istanbul, and I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas in the Middle East.
