Hip Hip UAE
I've read today that December marks the 40th anniversary of the creation of the United Arab Emirates. As many of you know Gail and I enjoy visiting Dubai for a holiday. Although we haven't been this year for various reasons. So looking through the hundreds and hundreds of photos that I have taken of the place down the years, I have found this one which lists them all, and how far they are from each other. I would say that Dubai is probably the most cosmopolitan, and certainly the most Westernised of the Emirates. It certainly looks a million times different since 1971. Some say that besides the Sheikh's house, the oldest building in Dubai is the clock tower and that dates from 1963!
