Yesterday, Day 39, was a travel day flying from London to Dubai and then getting to our hotel in Jumeirah Beach. All went well but I didn't know Dubai was so big. It took so long to get to the hotel given there was no traffic.
Today, we had a late start and then spent a lot of time and two taxi rides to find our friends Liz & Michael's hotel at the other end of Dubai. We were supposed to go out with them in the morning but by the time we found them it was too late as we had a car booked in the afternoon for a tour. So we had a couple of beers and then back to Jumeirah Beach to pick up the car.
The tour was very good. The driver/guide had been recommended to us and he was excellent. We has an enjoyable and interesting 4 hours touring old & new Dubai.
Pizza for dinner tonight. Funny eating pizza without red wine but the restaurants generally don't serve alcohol here. Oh well, good for the liver.
Tomorrow we are playing golf at The Els Club in the morning and going on a desert tour in the evening. A busy day for our last day before we head back to Australia.
