We arrived at 6am. The weather to my delight is cool for this time of year. The view out of the hotel window is spectacular although it has been a little overcast so the photos don't show to their best.
This mosque is just around the corner and the morning call to prayer is such a lovely sound. Much better than the noisy minor I wake to at home!!
The amount of building and construction is incredible. Cranes everywhere. I snapped this out of the taxi window which is not easy as they drive incredibly fast. Something I will need to get used to. The road rules are a little scarey.....people seem to drive where ever they want, especially at the roundabouts.
So far so good. I am enjoying Abu Dhabi very much. We are just about to go to a shopping mall and a market so will have some more photos to show.
