Durban, Dublin, Dubai

We've been to the 3 Dubs this last week - from Durban, to Dublin and Dubai (United Arab Emirates) - but East or West, home is usually best, and we can comfortably say that Durban's beaches and sea are undoubtedly the best we have seen. The desert safari in Dubai was pretty cool and here Llewellyn gets cosy with a camel. The second pic is of the Burj Arab Hotel, the world's largest hotel at Jumeira Beach where we swam in the warm waters of the Gulf. Not to be outdone by the rest of the world, the third picture is of the world's tallest building under construction. The height reached so far is 150 floors and the contractors are waiting for the building under construction in China before deciding on the total number of floors to be added (to about 170 stories) to ensure that the Dubai building is the world's tallest. We also saw from the air the world's largest poster laid out on the ground and entered in the Guiness Book of Records. The last picture was our sense of humour as gay guys looking laterally at the translation of stop in Arabic...lol.
