A view from our window in Dubai

An ending to a wonderful Celebrity cruise from Venice to Istanbul was concluded in Dubai where “Everything is possible”.  This was a view from our room at the Ritz Carlton.  The buildings, the people, the food will all be remembered fondly.  Dubai is utterly amazing!!

Hi Dorie -- I've never been to Dubai but from the rave reviews I've heard from people who have been there, its seems like a place to put on the must-see list.

It looks as if there was a celebration yesterday -- Happy Belated Birthday.

I have a friend who has been to Dubai several times and made a show for a TV series he is in, and he called it a "soul less place!" 

Have not been there yet as an adult, (as a toddler when my father was negotiating oil leases) and I really have enjoyed the architectural stories and feats of accomplishment in a barren desert.  A
