We took a tour to the Burj Khalifa - the 124th floor of 220 floors - the world's tallest tower. Also did a city tour which covered many older places. I hadn't known that Dubai was a fishing village until the discovery of oil in the 1960s, and most of the development has occurred since the 1990s.

The other amazing sight is the frequent groups of wealthy muslim families - 1 husband in white trailing 3-4 wives in black abayas, often with a lot of their face covered, and a collection of children. David can't understand how any man could possibly wan't more than 1 wife at a time, especially when each has to be treated equally financially.

Dubai is certainly amazing, but I think I would have trouble in such a male dominated society
