One my last day in Dubai I took a taxi up to the Burj Al Arab. Knowing that I couldn’t get on the beach and probably wouldn’t be able to get very close the taxi dropped me at the front gate. After taking a poor shot of the top of the building, I had a quick look around before getting a taxi back to my hotel. Next to the hotel’s gates is the Wild Wadi Water Park. It was very tempting to go to the waterpark to escape the heat in there cooled swimming pools. Sadly, I didn’t have my swimming shorts with me. This photograph was taken just next to the entrance to the park. It was one of the only authentic looking, bits of Arabian architecture I found in Dubai.
