I have been in Abu Dhabi for over one week now! Here are some pictures to show you what I've been up to. Enjoy!
|In the hotel lobby just capturing the moment. Behind me in a statue of a deer.|
Did you know that Abu Dhabi means "Father of Deer?"
According to Ask Ali, http://wwv.ask-ali.com/main.asp?pageID=527 , a man who used to chase Dhabi [deer] was named the "father" of the animal and the name caught on.And that was your free history lesson...thank your teacher! LOL!
|At the Abu Dhabi mall...stuffed camel in the background. |
I will find a real camel later and post pics! :)
