Yas Hotel at night.
Our Hotel Chef told us he had entertained Michael Schumacher at the hotel the other night and recommended we take a taxi to the Yas Hotel from which we would be able to see cars on the track. We took his advice and found ouselves at an amazing hotel built over and inside the Grand Prix track. We stood at a railing above the track and were treated to the sights and sounds of six cars racing around the track right in front of us!!!  Not sure why they are still here but we enjoyed it. The track winds around the hotel. Yas Hotel is stunning as you can see from the photos.
