I went on R&R in July and flew to Dubai. It is
one of the 7 countries in the UAE. Interestingly enough, there is an indoor
ski slope located at the Mall of The Emirates. I visited the place twice and
thought that I would try the slope out. Its an excellent place to be during
the hot summer season. Both times that I went there, I ended up staying both
afternoons. Who says you can't snowboard in the middle of the desert during
the summer time?
Just an additional note. The times that I went
to Ski Dubai, I met people from all over the world. Even those from Europe
where skiing is the norm of life. The outdoor picture is of the structure
from a distance. These are the last of the pics that I'm sending you. Take
care and God bless.
