These are pictures of Al Ain Museum. I had a great time despite my children being bored to death and driving me crazy. You will see pictures of old texts, such as Qurans and Hadith (written on skins), Pottery from the Hili tombs, antique Jewelry, pictures of what Al Ain looked like in just the 50's and 60's, artillery, money from different Khalifat, and gifts that were given from other countries to Sheik Zayed and donated to the museum. I took a picture of the label which stated which country gave the gift, then I tried to put the picture of the gift right afterward. Note the pic. of the bag that said for Womens cosmetics, I thought that was so 'a propos. Enjoy! View pictures as large as possible to get writing and detail if able use zoom

The next set of Pictures is from a lazy Saturday afternoon cooked a big yummy Thanksgiving type dinner!!

Then the next set is from a trip to The Mall of Emirates, which was out of this world, fantabulous! The is the mall that has the famous Ski Dubai in it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ski_Dubai. You can check it out. It was amazing and I could only see about one quarter of it. The pictures are labeled "last from dreadful camera" because I FINALLY BOUGHT A NEW CAMERA!!! that I dropped and its now making funny noises. aaghh!!!

The last set of pics is from our most recent trip to Dubai pics of the desert and a cool looking pineapple bld. Etisalat headquarters ( one of 2 internet, phone, cable providers in the Emirates), then some pics of new construction.
