From Dubai to Continent #5, Last Stop Before Home

I'm currently laying by our pool in Dubai, about to go to our room to clean up before we head to the airport for our flight to Cairo. Our last destination on this incredible adventure. 

Dubai is incredible. I've described it as a mash up between Vegas, Disney and the Jetsons. Everything is new, tall, and fancy. In the middle of the desert. On the beautiful Persian Gulf. The city is not walkable and not just because of the heat. The city has been built in little areas, all relatively far apart, so driving, taxis or the metro are necessities. Things don't seem all that far because the buildings are tall and you can see everything! But it's a mirage. Roads are only constructed in certain areas so it often feels like the long way around. It's a bit disjointed, but it's like nowhere I've ever been.

And next, Cairo...
