View from Room 2084

I am staying at the Grand Millenium Hotel in Dubai. (Yes, there is a story behind that choice.)

This is a view from my hotel room. Yes, the place is COMPLETELY surrounded with construction sites. The snowman in the foreground was given to my by my daughter, Annie. It goes everywhere with me, and I take pictures from the hotel with the snowman on the window ledge.

The Grand Millenium Hotel feels like it is in the middle of nowhere. However, I don’t think that will last. The buildings around it will be completed, and there is a monorail station about 200 meters from here. Under construction, naturally. img_0623
