Bab al Shams Buffet857 viewsThe dinner buffet was quite spectacular. On the evening we visited, the desert "fort" was not very crowded, and most of the guests ate early.

Dinner at the Bab al Shams280 viewsWe went to a great outdoors dinner in a "fort" that had been created in the desert. Here's some not-so-flat flatbrad and some great cheese.

Our Bedroom at the Burj al Arab -- Dubai377 viewsWith a spectacular view over the Arabian Sea. In the distance, they're constructing an artificial series of islands that will look like a palm tree. The palm tree can be seen from space. Nothing half-measure in Dubai.

Burj al Arab Cocktail Lounge1295 viewsWe sat on a bit of a raised platform, and we could see Dubai itself through the windows from our perch.

"Volcano" at Entrance to Burj al Arab Hotel1935 viewsThe water "volcano" at the entrance to the Burj al Arab Hotel has a real Las Vegas feeling.

Marjorie Enjoying a Mojito353 viewsWe had our first [url=http://www.bacardimojito.com/]mojito[/ul] cocktails in Havana, where they were invented. But the mojitos at the top of the Burj al Arab Hotel in Dubai were a close second.

Our Bathtub -- Burj al Arab Hotel4813 viewsOur suite (all rooms at the Burj al Arab Hotel are suites) covered two floors, with a long curving staircase connecting the floors. We had a large shower and a big round bath tub, complete with a painting of Dubai.

Waiting to Go In The Submarine to Dinner276 viewsIn the Burj al Arab, the seafood restaurant is supposedly below the sea. To get there, you take a "submarine" that's more like a Disneyland ride. I'm in the holding area, waiting for our "submarine" to arrive. The restaurant has a huge fish tank, so it's like eating (I guess) underwater.

Dar Al Masyaf - Night Time381 viewsThis is the view from our "boat stop" on the canal system at the Dar Al Masyaf villas. To get to dinner we waited for a boat to pick us up. The ride to the souk only took a few minutes. Now that's civilised!

Marjorie Pushing The Flower Cart298 viewsIt was amazing how many fresh flowers there were at the Burj al Arab Hotel, and they were changed frequently.
