Dubai Day 3 – 30/12/2016

Dec 30, 2016   //   by Kora Philipp   //   Student Blog  //  No Comments

It’s already our third day with CBL and since it’s Friday, it’s like a Western world`s “Sunday”, many facilities are closed in the morning to give the Muslim time to join Salat al-Dschum, Friday’s prayer.

Still, our language teacher Hala comes to EAHM to teach us some basic expressions in Arabic in the morning. She has a very funny and outgoing personality and learning from her is much fun. As she makes us “talk” to another, everyone is quickly able to introduce himself in Arabic and greet and thank people.

In the late afternoon, we go to the desert South-West of Dubai. At a base camp we change cars and get on special 4x4s, which take us dune bashing. After a thrilling, but safe trip on this natural roller coaster, we stop at a Beduin styled desert camp, where we have the opportunity to get on cross bikes, quads or ride a camel. For the delegates, the desert itself is the main attraction and we play around the sand dunes as children and watch the sun sink at this very special place. After sunset, we dine at the camp and watch a show which features belly dancing, fire dwelling and Dervishes whirl.

Returning back to Dubai late that night, we take a look at the sparkling skyline of Dubai and realize, how surreal it feels to build up a city like Dubai in the desert.
