Breath-taking sceneries occupied my time in Jordan.  Petra is a must-go and I highly recommend it if you have a chance to visit.

Trying out the new Dubai metro

Clean, beautiful station was the first impression I had for the Dubai Metro.  Not bad at all.

I went up and down the escalator just to be silly

Posing with Susan's mom visiting from the U.K.

We had to walk a long way to the nearest station..among the construction sites, which are typical in Dubai, or the U.A.E.

Beautiful station

Fancy decors

Me, little me, finally riding the crowded metro. Where did all these people come from?

Collecting friends

Cool friends in the U.A.E.
I will never forget how exciting it was to meet people that shared part of my life in the UAE and befriended me so much. 

Friends who offered to listen to me, check on me when I was not so happy.

Friends that I met unexpectedly in the weirest circumstances; and those who opened up themselves to show unconditional support to me.  I may not see them again for a long time, but the memories will remain freshly endearing in my heart.
