John Dean’s presentation Gems of Arabia  features Dubai (one of the 7 Emirates) and Oman (the country which boarders the Emirates).  Dubai is one of the most futuristic cities in the world, the most progressive and modern city in the Middle East, and a dynamic city-state at the heart of the United Arab Emirates. The drive into Oman is punctuated by roaming camels, rippling sand dunes and the occasional oasis set against a backdrop of craggy mountains. Along the way we walk through very old abandoned villages, forts, castles and fishing villages along the Arabian coast.  “Attending a cattle and goat fair was a good place interact with the nomadic Bedouin people.”
