36 hours after we left the USA we were on the Sheik Zayed Road (really a freeway) headed to our temporary home in The Greens. The city just amazing. At midnight it is definitely warm here, but not unbearable.
First class travel rocks.
The kids were great the entire time.
They were pretty much mobbed when we got into an elevator at the airport here. The women in particular were touching the kids' faces and blond hair and tickling Thomas. I hear blond, curly-haired kids better get used to that fast here and ours handled themselves well.
Everyone here has been super nice to us in our first few hours here.
We're sore and tired from the flights and all our luggage and tramping around Amsterdam (another beautiful city, and one I'd love to visit and photograph) but Dubai is spectacular and we feel very welcome.
We're needing to go to bed now (it's the middle of the night here), but will post more as soon as we can.
