Bit more head-spinning as we venture up the World's Tallest Building.
No change in the weather, hot as. Another couple of ways to emphasise the heat, at 10.30 this morning it wad 41* however on the Weather App while it was technically 41* the App said, it 'felt like' 51*!!!! And it did. 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺. Second point of interest re heat, not a lot of sweating because it all evaporates! Hence need for more 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺!
We spent a little bit of time cruising about Dubai Creek first off and yes, the boat was airconditioned, thanks.
Now the airconditioned bus stops and the AC in the top half of the Big Red Bus! And just one shot of Russell trying some new headgear! No he decided not to buy!
A few more 'townscape' shots before we went up 'the big tower'.
Next, we went up to the top viewing area of the Burj-Khalifa 550 metres up, while the building and its spire goes further up, to an impressive 835 metres! As you see in some of the shots, Dubai has been quite literally, built in the Arabian desert.
Just to finish off, we spent some time in the Dubai Mall, a massive shopping centre with an impressive Acquarium and of course a couple of waterfalls, oh hum. . .
There are still two blogs to be done regarding Cornwall, one with lots of pics around the North Cornwall Coast and the other, a story about Great Great Grandfather, William Henry Banfield. Both will now take a week or two. We leave Dubai tomorrow and arrive back in Launceston on Sunday.
