Here is a picture of me at the Grand Mosque. It is HUGE!
Explosive growth all over the city.

The world's largest rug in the Grand Mosque. So plush!

Old meets new: A traditional dhow boat with the Abu Dhabi skyline across the Arabian Gulf.
UPDATE: I've just arrived back from the UAE. I had a wonderful time, and I have some great pics to show you on Monday. I even have a small surprise for each of you from abroad! I hope you had a nice break, too!
