This post is LONG overdue. I was selected to be a teacher delegate by the Dallas Fort-Worth World Affairs Council in January to travel to the United Arab Emirates. The trip was over spring break (March 7-15, 2015) and it was an amazing experience. We spent the first five days in Abu Dhabi and the last three days in Dubai. The UAE is a great example of a traditional culture that has rapidly embraced all things modern without losing sight of who they are and what they value.
The UAE embassy in Washington, D.C. and the Crown Prince Court sponsored the trip and they spared no expense as we stayed in beautiful hotels and ate amazing food. The trip was sensational and I learned so much about the culture, people, and education system. Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip. Heads up there are LOTS of pictures.
The trip was sensational and I will be posting a link to the completed travel book within the next week, so you can see even more photos and read about some of the things we did. I can't wait to return in the future
