United Arab Emirates, day 2

United Arab Emirates, day 2

My adventures in the United Arab Emirates continue and yesterday saw another action packed and fun day.

The day started out with an invitation by our mutual friend Baader, to have traditional breakfast at his place, in a Bedouin style tent, nowadays these tents are air conditioned! It also involved coffee drinking after breakfast and burning a special wood in a small holder and the smoke can be used to 'perfume' your clothes. The food was great, once more.

After some sight seeing around Umm al-Quwain, where Bader and Imad live, it was time for lunch and we went to this very outstanding local Umm al-Quwaini sea food restaurant 'Wadi Al Neel', which is famous around the UAE for it's great food. The place is small but was packed all the time we were there and the food was just great!

After lunch it was time to head direction Abu Dhabi, one of the 7 Emirates and the capital of the UAE. There was a visit to the Ferrari World amusement park and the finals of the FIFA Club World Cup in the plans.

At Ferrari world we were all 3 impressed by the sheer size and beautiful design of the place. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to visit the amusement park but the current fastest roller coaster in the world, the Formula Rossa is located here.

We were off to the finals of the FIFA Club World Cup finals between Inter Milan from Italy and TP Mazember from Congo at the Sheik Zayed Stadium. It had been a while since I saw a live football match and it was great to be at the stadium. Inter won easily with 3-0 and we were off back to Umm al-Quwain again were we got home by 1am.

In between each event and during all of the day, I had a decent amount of cups of mint tea, during which occasion Imad and Bader smoked a sheesha.

By visiting Abu Dhabi yesterday, I've been to all 7 Emirates just withing 2 days!
