More From Dubai-Lots of Photos

We are still here in Dubai. Kelly is still with us. We head to Abu Dhabi tomorrow, about an hour's drive away. Another Test starts for Daryl on Friday. Kel and I will return to Dubai Monday and then fly to Bangkok Tuesday. I fly home on Friday week, arriving in Sydney on the 27th, where Daryl should have already arrived from Dubai. Kelly will continue her travel from Bangkok and isn't expected home until Feb-March next year.
Here are a few of our recent photos.
