Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

     I still have to comply with the promise to post more pictures from my Abu Dhabi trip, it's just that I have had so much on my mind I just couldn't get around to it.

     Here it is! It's a truly beautiful and peaceful place. It literally took my breath away the first time I laid eyes on it on our way into the city from the airport and I visited twice! I absolutely find it fascinating, just like a number of other things from the Emirati culture!

   The size of 5 football fields and fitting 40000 people, it's the eight biggest mosque in the world. And it's an absolute wonder in design and construction...
