Dubai from satellite
So with the photos of Dubai taken from space that I was talking about this morning, here's a little clarification. Because the image is enhanced with infrared light, the irrigated vegetation stands out in red. In case you were confused, we don't have red plants or red pavement here. Nope.

Anyway, here's a close-up of our 'hood:

No, we don't live on the Palm Jumeirah, but on the land near it.

No chance you'd catch me on that fake island just waiting for a typhoon or tsunami or even a big wake from a Nimitz class aircraft carrier...

Follow along in the culture shock of being recently married and (for Josh, at least) recently transplanted to Dubai.
