2010-06-13 -- Dubai

Not a whole lot happened today; I think we're all getting a little tired. Dad and I swam in the (very very warm) Persian Gulf.

Mom went home today. Thierry threw a goodbye party for her in his room, drinks and snacks. This gave us a chance to unwind a bit -- semi-formal dining every night gets a little tiring after a while.

After our swim in the Persian Gulf, a helicopter landed on the Burj Al Arab. A short while later it departed again.

White chocolate covered strawberries. Excellent strawberries, sweet, tender throughout, no trace of the tough bitter core that lesser strawberries usually have.

Master bedroom (and only bedroom -- I got a cot in the living room) at the Burj Al Arab. The rooms are two levels, the top level has the bedroom and the bath. Downstairs is a living room, a small 'business center' and a small bathroom.

The staircase; note the clock on the wall (projected) and the blue ceiling (on only when the lights are dim).
