We had the day off for Thanksgiving so we went out to explore the souks. I got to like Dubai a bit more after that trip. There is an original culture here underneath the artificial one the Sheiks have been creating the last 42 years. Tomorrow they celebrate National Day, the day the UAE was created. Apparently, Sheik Zayad was a visionary whose vision of unity is carried on by his son. This is the place to be in the Middle East. I know they love fireworks.
