Sam in Dubai

Sam was recently in Dubai. He had a great time there. When I was there was were suppose to stay in the "sandbox" near the ship. But now they are are allowed to take tours of the area. i am so jealous. Dubai looks to interesting and I would have loved to seen the place.

I would love to see the Palm Dubai, they are the largest artificial islands in the world and can be seen from space. World Islands, 300 artificially created islands in the shape of the world. The Burj al-Arab hotel . The worlds tallest hotel. Considered the only ‘7 star’ hotel and the most luxurious hotel in the world. It stands on an artificial island in the sea. I have actully seen this one from a far back in 2003 when I was there.

Dubai is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the Persian Gulf. Dubai is the most populous and second largest emirate of the UAE after Abu Dhabi. Dubai has become world famous place through innovative real estate projects, sports events, conferences and Guinness records. And that is pretty much all I know about that place.

Here are some pictures of Sam when he was there:

Incase anyone wanted to know we have about two months (+/- a couple of days) left of this deployment!!!!
