1/3 Cruise, 1/3 Vegas & 1/3 Disneyland

  We have adapted to Ramadan, we knew in order to survive the day we had to eat the biggest breakfast ever. Our hotel offers a buffet which was actually pretty good for the price; we ate like there is no tomorrow. We decided to divide Dubai into three areas and visit 1 of them each day….

Abu Dhabi And The Very Expensive Mosque

Today we needed to adapt if we wanted to survive the month of Ramadan here. We walked to the supermarket to get some pre-made breakfast to bring back to the apartment since we couldn’t eat  the food in public (luckily there was a market across the street from the apartment).

Thuk Jay Chey Tibet

Thuk Jay Chey is how you say “Thank you” in Tibetan. This is our last entry on Tibet and we really enjoyed our time here. So… Thank You Tibet! Today was a very interesting and expensive day. Because of the idiots of Air China cancelling our flight we needed to book a another tour day…

On the Way

The next morning we visited the Palcho Monastery in Gyantse on the way to Lhasa. We drove though very beautiful green mountain scenery.
