Over the next few weeks, I thought I would share some pictures from my trip to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates back in January 2012. I spend a few days in Abu Dhabi after attending a geology conference in the Sultanate of Oman. I went to Abu Dhabi to visit Karima, a good friend of mine from college, and her family. I had a wonderful trip. It was great catching up with Karima and her family. They were wonderful hosts, and I saw many wonderful things in Abu Dhabi and also Dubai. I really enjoyed sightseeing with them, and I saw many great rocks– mostly in the form of decorative stones on various fancy buildings.
During my first day in Abu Dhabi, I went kayaking with Karima, her husband, and son. We went kayaking with a group amongst some mangroves. What a great way to see part of the city and start my trip! I highly recommend a kayaking trip if you’re in Abu Dhabi.
