*More than 4 years have passed since I realised this was posted in error. What was supposed to be a post about us getting ready for our desert safari became a repeat of a previous post. Our apologies!

We rested up a bit and packed our luggage, since we will be checking out soon. After checking out of the residence we got into a gleaming white Toyota which will serve as our 'camel' today as we trek across the desert.

we'll miss Nuran

headed out of the city

I think we're headed West?

got distracted by the pylons

Brendan's riding shotgun

We headed out of Dubai and after about 45 minutes  along the Dubai Hatta road reached an outpost where the driver let out air from the tires to avoid getting stuck in soft sand later.

nope, we're not there yet

the desert outpost

to let out air from the tires

wonder if anyone's been up there

does it have a name?

while we wait for the driver

A group of 4x4 joined us at the desert outpost, and after about a 15 minute wait we set off again on the road headed to Lehbab desert.

the 4x4 felt heavier

a magnificent sun

almost there

turning off here

are we there yet?

yes we are!

Here we go!
