Nov 03, 2008 - Dubai

There is so much to see and do in Dubai, but most of what I saw was the inside of a taxi and offices. After meeting with the Dubai Central Laboratory, I had a meeting with the RTA and then AECOM.





Once my workday was over, I came back to the hotel, changed clothes, and set out into the city. I wanted to take a city tour, but as it was 4:00 p.m. when I got back to the hotel, I just went out by myself on foot. I headed towards the Al Mauktoum Bridge, and then along the Dubai Creek. I walked through the spice souk and the gold souk. It was interesting. I wish I would have been able to take a tour or do something a little more, though. By about 6:30, I had walked over 5 miles, gotten a few pictures, and was ready to head back to the hotel.
