DUBAI (24 May - 1 June 2003)

Hatta is an hour or so's drive across the desert from Dubai.

Once you have negotiated the roads around Dubai,
you then have to contend with motorways through the desert!

Hatta has its own Heritage Museum which is still under construction.

But you can see how fortifications were defended.....

....or how dates are grown.

A real camel this time.

But one of the main reasons (apparently) to come to Hatta
is to drive to the rock pools. The car hire companies say 4 wheel drive only
but we managed in a standard saloon car.

There are lots of rock formations to admire before you arrive at the pools.

But the pools were a little disappointing. Maybe they are better in the winter.
