Friday afternoon we tried to get into the Jumeria Beach Hotel for brunch, but were denied, so we took a little walk on their pier. This building is the Burj Al Arab, the most famous building in Dubai. It is the most exclusive hotel in Dubai and the rooms go for about $3000 US per night. They are always at least 95% occupied.
this is one of the many painted camels around the city
After walking , we tried to enjoy a beer by the beach, but beer + a crabby fair-skinned baby + jet lag + 4 o'clock in the afternoon + 108 degree heat = exhaustion
.....so we went walking and got some of this, but still ended up napping after it all
but not until we were able to photograph the Grand Mosque, the largest mosque in Dubai which is right across the street from our hotel
