Fabulous three night stopover on the way home at the Shangri-La, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi. The weather was very hot but dry and so not too uncomfortable. Our hotel was great to relax in with a couple of outdoor pools and a great view of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque across the water. We visited the Mosque which was an amazing building with lots and lots of marble and the biggest carpet in the world, soo large it was lowered in by helicoptor. We shopped in the gold souk and had a short tour through the city and lovely lunch in a revolving restaunt looking out over all over Abu Dhabi.
