We had to get ready by 9 in morning. After a hot water bath, I was all set for the breakfast till 8:30 a.m. The sun strokes were high as usual. The buffet had its cuisine ready for the morning breakfast. Our cab arrived by 9 and we were all set to leave. We had a city tour to Abu Dhabi. The view of the buildings standing tall, blocked the sun rays to fall on roads. United Arab Emirates (UAE) has 7 states. An amazing thing about travelling through all 7 states is that you get to discover difference in the color of roads in all 7 states. When we reached Abu Dhabi, the color of the road was slightly green. We saw all the palaces where the prince of the UAE and his wives resided, famous hotels, dockyards and harbors. The import/export plays a very important role in a deserted place. We also saw the World Trade Center (where the Fast and Furious series was shot).
