Yesterday, I landed from.Shanghai at five-thirty in the morning. By seven, Dubai had turned a mystical color. I was taking pictures out the bus window with my phone, which seemed to give the other cabin Crew on the bus permission to do the same. It was enchanted. All day, everyone had big smiles on their faces, everywhere I went. I went out at night, coming home after four in the morning, and the city was crystalline. Anyone who arrived in Dubai as a tourist yesterday. has undoubtedly decided to stay.

These are motion panoramas, straight off my camera, no color enhancement. You can click them to see the original (huge) versions.

Today, it was cloudy. That was pretty, too.

Happy 2013, everybody!
