Dubai Day 4

What an amazing time we have had. Such an incredible place.

These guys were visionaries.
Turned a desert into an amazing place.

The Grand Mosque

Originally built in 1900, demolished and built again in 1960. Then it then underwent a further rebuilding in 1998 (to what you see now). The mosque is the hub of Dubai’s religious and cultural life.

Such beautiful architecture…

What a sweet ride.


Dubai… Discover all that’s possible.

Dubai at night… What a beautiful place. The lights and the cityscape make it truly magical.


The Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest building. It is 2,722 feet high (over half a mile high) with 160 stories! Not only is Burj Khalifa the world’s tallest building, it has also broken two other impressive records: tallest structure and tallest free-standing structure. 

Hi from Dubai

This is an indoor ski slope in one of the malls here in Dubai (Dubai is in the desert!). Crazy wealthy (and ostentatious) city that is a creation of the vision of some folks here who were able to see a dusty fishing village and to imagine a bustling city of 2 million with beautiful buildings, including the tallest in the world…for now at least. 🙂

They are also building the largest Ferris Wheel based on the London Eye that will serve meals while you circle around and view the city and the waterfront. (How about one of these on the GAF bayfront site, Joe? 😀)

We’ve had a chance to visit with our office here. Terrific people doing business throughout the Middle East and Africa, and to meet with a couple of our customers so far. One is a US-based furniture manufacturer/distributor and the other is the #1 bicycle, skateboard and snowboard importer in the region.  Nice people all, and some cool projects (like office furniture to Kabul Afghanistan for the World Bank!).Today we will visit our warehouse and meet with some other customers.
Dubai is truly an international city, with people from all over the world coming to live and work together and do business worldwide.  And LP has assembled an awesome team to do just that!
