Here is a shot of Dubai and its neighbouring emirate of Sharjah. This is the area called Deira and in the distance is Sharjah.
This was taken from seat 46K on a flight from Dubai to London. And that is where I am right now... cold but splendid London (Hi to Ham - I wish I had time to hook up...)
I hope to keep the posts coming - will be back in DXB in a few days time.
Thanks for all the comments on the desert series - I'm sure to feature some more sand soon!
