I've taken some really beautiful pictures of Dubai... These are not they.

Sure I'll try it, but you have to try it first. No, really, after you. Please.

This brand of toilet paper is the best!

How would you pronounce the name of this popular tobacco brand?

Near Sheikh Zayed Road in Karama... This town is getting too rough for me.

'Barf ka gola' = 'Tablet of ice'

These consist of a lot of very, very sweet syrup mixed into ice. They're actually supposed to be nice, if you like sweets. Was that taken at Bombay Chowpatti by any chance?

cool pics

Those skate boarders certainly deal with hard choices.

Isn't Fakher the name of Ben Stiller's family in 'Meet the Parents'?

Great pics again Susan. How about some pics of the new pad? I hear you have a pool on the roof.

Hope you don't mind if I add you. Your journal is fun and interesting as well as a bit educational to the less traveled such as myself. I'm Shana btw.

These pictures are great! I added you because your whirlwind travel posts are fantastic and I want to read more. Would you mind helping a sister out--how'd you get this sweet job?

the "kh" sound is what you guys can't pronounce and end up pronouncing it like a normal "k"! which makes it funny and sound like something else.

kh is sooooo different from k.

aal faakhir!
not foker!

not similar at all to what you all think ;)

but i saw those photos on her site, those are great!
