Dubai Day 6

On our last day we drove into the desert. On our way we saw some gazelles running across our road:

What a pity, no camel crossed at the time :(

Then we wanted to drive on the dunes. Dune stalking:

Dune bashing:

There were other people here, too. And some guys were heavily engaged with showing-off:

He was driving back and forth and showed me his tricks on the motorbike:

A last glimpse on our desert resort:

Isn't it a bit like One Thousand and One Nights?

And this is the last pic from Dubai. I hope you enjoyed :)

Dubai day 5

We treated us to a lunch in the insanely expensive Burj al-Arab. Here is a view from one of the restaurants at the top of the burj:

The lobby was still decorated for Valentine's Day:

We also went to an amazing bird-of-prey show ( An Hungarian falconer and his German wife were presenting -not just- falcons! There were birds of prey from owls to eagles and griffon vultures. Beautiful animals, really caring master, and having such an animal sitting on your hand is an unforgettable experience:

That's me btw with Hetterich, the barn owl:
