Wow !!!!
I have never seen so many tall buildings and so ornate also.

They sure must have a of of money down there.

You drove from one place to another while you were seeing all those animals.

Where was this drive from and to.

Where did you board the cruise ship and from where to where did you cruise.

Amazing pictures, Thanks so much for posting

Thank you. Yes the architecture is amazing in the Emirates and in Qatar too.

The animals are in an island called Sir Bani Yas. As you know most of those animals are not native to the Emirates and were brought in. The guide said there were over 1000 antelopes of various types and 3 male cheetahs were introduced to cull the numbers and there are plans to bring in female cheetah as well to breed.

The entire drive was in this place which took just under 2 hours.

We first went to India, Delhi, for 4 days then flew to Dubai for 5 days before embarking on our 7 day cruise. We were supposed to stop in Bahrain but that was canceled for security reasons so our stops were SBY, Qatar and Abu Dhabi.

Glad you are enjoyed this and maybe this whets your interest to go there some day!
