I am so fascinated by Dubai, this place that was raised out of the dessert fairly recently, a fascinating mixture of ancient and thoroughly contemporary. Gorgeous photos! And wonderful taboule so different than the taboule I know.

Lovely pictures. Dubai definitely is a fantastic place to spend vacations. I was there in Feb-Mar this year and the weather was absolutely wonderful.
