42 years ago on the site of Dubai was a desert. People rode on camels and donkeys, have lived on the sand .... Who of you was in Dubai in recent years, saw that the Arabs have done on their own land, that is, sand)))
This is a bus stop. I went inside - on the wall of the telly with a timetable. Powered air conditioning. Incidentally, such pavilions at each stop of two. Probably, for men and women separately.
Dubai is full of machines. There are very old and brand-new. Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini and other "Porshakov with Mustang" - in the order of things. But I do not see any hybrid car may just past the eye was .... Self drive a hybrid, so always pay attention to them

In Dubai, there are Gulf Dubai Greek and yet it is called Dubai Creek. Here you can ride a wooden motorboats (Abra). For a leisurely conversation boatmen await tourists. Crossed over to the other side is worth 1 dirham per person (about 9 rubles)

The sailors one of the vessels
And it probably came to the owner of cargo

Road interchange - it's something ....
It's time to dinner at a restaurant at the foot of the tower. Every half-hour presentation begins - fountains "dance" to different music. Wonderful!
The Jets beat the fountain to a height of 150 meters! The second fountain can lift into the air 83 tons of water! Also spotlights are used gas injectors and smoke generators. Cool show!

28. However, the Seychelles flying aboard modest.
29. We met the amiable hostess of the Emirates. Bah! On the badge read «Natalia Ivashchenko». Sisters Brothers Slavs!

Just another early morning. View from the balcony of my room.
Breakfast is almost on the shore of the Indian Ocean
Completely forgot! Seychelles are here
By the way, about the price of food. As you can take the equivalent of beer. For example, Heineken 355 ml worth 120 Seychelles rupees. We multiply by 3, 6 get 432 of our ruble. Decide or not expensive. Seychelles practically all imported! Well, except for some fruits and seafood. Therefore, the prices are high.
There is one local souvenir - Coco-de-mer. This sea coconut grows only on the Seychelles. It looks like a female hips (front view). Exportation only if officially bought in the store. It is worth USD 250 per share. My hand was raised to buy
The menu includes even Russian cuisine - Borsch and Solyanka 140 rupees per serving. Try also not decided. Prawns much tastier
In the Seychelles people do not go for the entertainment, not at the party, and for enjoying nature, marine life, solitude and silence.
"Postcard" species - everywhere! The color of water, sky - simply stunning. No emotions and pictures do not give a real feeling of what he saw
Explore the area ... Probably not a bad place to stay
