|Dubai on a rare cloudy day|
I will say this - when we got in the crowded elevator at the base of the Burj Khalifa, tallest building in the world, and the elevator ascended 124 floors to the observation deck and the lights inside the elevator blinked faster and faster and the music grew more frantic and my ears popped as we climbed higher, a bit of panic crept into my chest. I imagined us shooting up through the top of the needle tipped structure and bursting out into the clouds - Wonkavator style. Or a real life rocket to the moon.

|The outer observation deck. Clouds people - that's how high up we were|
|View from the inner observation area|
|Diver Fountain - one of many attractions inside the Dubai Mall, largest mall in the world. |
I know, yet another superlative.
|These ships are loaded with all kinds of goods - baby play pens, tires, washing machines - bound for Iran.|
