Nice flight heaps of food which was good.  then into Dubai just as dawn was breaking but unfortunately didn't get to see the picture islands that they have there as it was too dark.  Managed to get a chaffer to our hotel (free from emirates) which was supposable not far from the airport but actually about a km.  After a bit of faffing around trying to get to the right entrance checked in then some new door boy didn't know where our room was so grandpa wasn't very happy about wondering around up and down stairs to find our room.  but got there eventually.  Not a bad room pretty small but good air con which was good.  I then went for a walk and sent grandpa to bed for n hour (at 8 in the morning) it was so hot out i came back absolutely covered is sweat so after a bit of a cool off we opted for a cab into the city (Although we didn't really know where the main city was) so found a few shops and things but then decided to get lunch and of course it was the middle of ramadan so we weren't allowed food anywhere (we even got in trouble by a police man after eating chips in public). So finally headed back to the hotel and found food there.  Relaxed for a while (actually we both passed out till 7pm) then had nice italian for dinner in the hotel again.  Early morning flight the next day and again got the chaffer to the airport. beautiful weather except we flew straight out of the city so agian didnt see any of the islands but sore a hell of a lot of sand got some nice pics of it.
