Abu Dhabi!!! Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and sight seeing tour

We started off our bus tour with an unusual breakfast. A chicken tikka sandwich and Al Ain apple juice made in Dubai which has now become my favorite apple juice ever!!!

We took a 3 day 2 night trip to Abu Dhabi and did the Big Bus sight seeing tour which took us throughout the city and connecting islands. It was a great tour and my favorite part by far was the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The architecture was gorgeous.

This mosque can accommodate up to 30,000 people. It is the third largest mosque in the world and can be seen from space! The carpet in the mosque is the largest Persian carpet in the world and took 1,200 women 2 years to make. It has 82 marble domes.

Everyone who wants to enter the mosque has to adhere to the Islamic dress code

Here are some other sights we saw on the tour.
