This past Saturday, Dad took the opportunity to tour around Abu Dhabi. They have double decker busses you can ride around town. You purchase a ticket and then can get on and off at various locations. He took most of the day to explore the city and see some of the unique aspects of the city. Here are a few random pictures of things he found interesting.
He said all of the homes have 2 car garages, as well as these umbrella covers for their cars.
He has been asked about the construction materials used in the city, they do not build with wood. Wood is used for doors and furniture, all other building is done with cinder blocks and cement.
This is a fire hydrant. They fold out to reveal a fire hydrant.
This is the door handles that are on the majority of the homes. Very ornate.
We hope your enjoying these pictures from Dad's experience in this unique part of the world.
