Dubai Day 2

The next day I attended the ICAS Dubai 2010, the 'ancient studies' conference and had the honour to wait for his Excellency H.H. Sheikh Hashr Bin Maktoum Al Maktoum, the director of the Dubai Information Department to appear late in the morning. Well, who wants to start at 9 o'clock anyway...
In case you are interested in reading an Arabic map, here is a map of Dubai, with the hosting uni (the red square), and even roughly our hotel (the red dot):

Here a picture of the Zayed University in Silicon Oasis:

While I was waiting for his Excellency the rest of the family enjoyed a dessert tour with Arabian Adventures (

They experienced a flat tyre in the middle of the dessert:

a lazy camel:

Fossil rock:

a non-fossil rock with dessert:

and last but not least, just dessert:

In short, a succesful day for all of us :)
