Desert Safari Dubai Day 7 & 8

5 Jan

Yesterday there wasn’t much going on, we went to FedEx Dubai and toured all the planes and learned about FedEx as a company, we then went to a french water engineering company where we learned about all of the things they do (ZzZz) Afterwards we went to a mall where i bought a new pulli and some awesome shoes (only buyable in europe).

Today was a lot of fun, we first went to visit Majesty Yachts and learned all about the made to order yacht making business. We saw the marble interiors showers and a large yacht that was being made for a ruler of a country (country not disclosed). It was really fascinating, and it was also intriguing to see laborers that worked without the creation of labor unions (the group was somewhat divided on this issue). Afterwards we went on a desert safari, where we drove around in vans and went up and down the amazing dunes-then watched the sunset. We then went to a little oasis in the desert, where we smoked hookah,ate dinner, and got henna(for free), i had my name written in arabic on my arm-it looked really cool. We also rode camels! We then watched belly dancing, and then left. At the end of the day we all went in the sauna and relaxed….felt incredible (even though my legs are still sore from snowboarding).
