View of the Palm
Over the weekend we went out with some friends to the rooftop bar at the One and Only Royal Mirage Hotel.

Where's that, you might ask?

Check this photo out:

Aerial View of The Palm Jumeirah, May 2006

No, it's sadly not on the Palm Jumeirah, but it was on the land right outside of it - somewhere between the middle and right-hand-most of the three swimming pools.

Here's another view of where we were on the Dubai Map that we found in the autumn (see Map of Dubai).

Of course, it was dusk, so the camera phone was pretty useless in trying to take a photo. But the view was, quite simply, amazing. The island is open now, but there's still a ton of construction, so as the sun went down, the huge klieg lights made it look like a warped Christmas display.

We'll go back there someday and I'll make sure to get some photos of the Palm and share them here. It was amazing.

(Check out more photos of the Palm Jumeirah at the Nakheel corporate website.)
