24 hours in Dubai...

We made it into Dubai right on time and got through the airport so easy. Our hardest obstacle was the Columbus airport.
We got in at 8 at night and it was 103 degrees outside.

We tried to sleep through the night. We took a super long nap after breakfast, and LH was out. He kept trying to convince me of why he should sleep more, but I won and he got up. We had to start getting on the right time zone at some point.

We spent our Saturday afternoon and evening in Dubai. This city seems incredible. The skyline is gorgeous.
We went to two malls. The first had an Ikea, and I'm glad the Dubai Ikea was my first Ikea experience. The Dubai mall was next, and it is HUGE. It's pretty overwhelming. It's one of the biggest malls in the world. Most of the time you forget you're even in the middle east when you're in it (minus the signs in Arabic).
There are all different types of people, dress, and food everywhere.
Dubai has the tallest building in the world, The Burj Khalifa. It's massive.
We ate in the mall at TGI Fridays, because they have the best view of the fountain show. The only negative to this is the heat outside on the patio...remember, it's way above 100 degrees here during the day.

I tried to look around and soak it all in. We kept reminding each other this is the only "first" time in the middle east, and our thoughts and feelings will never be like this again.

We took a lot of pictures, but here are a few...
 The Pringles. Ketchup Flavored.

World's Tallest!

Tomorrow we make the last leg of our trip into K-town. This is the truly exciting part.
