Getting Away to Fujeirah and the Rest of the Country

As our trip draws to a close, what better way to top what we’ve done so far by getting out of town? Dubai is but one of seven Emirates, but by no means does Dubai represent what the UAE is like in general. Friday would be a day we saw the rest of the country. But first, we got something to eat at Burger King. Bean Royale anyone?

Before we got on with the long road trip, we came across Sharjah Institute of Technology [I won’t say the acronym joke] and University City Hall. They would be the last modern looking structures for many, many miles. Many, many, many miles as we drove into the deserts.

We decided to head east, cutting through Sharjah en route to Fujeirah. The road to the Indian Ocean was about what I was expecting from a desert country. All desert. Even saw some real camels roaming the sands. Miles and miles of road surrounded by miles and miles of desert. Well, until we reached the mountains.

Power lines criss cross the country every which way you look

You can literally see where the desert sands end and the mountains begin.

Emiratis love their country!

Falling rocks? We’ll just build a tunnel.

Hitchhikers?

More hitchhikers!?

Did I mention mosques are everywhere?

We descended the mountains and found civilization again.

The journey to the other side of the country was too much for the ladies and little ones.
