Day 5 and 6 - Hot Outside, Cold Inside

Have you ever reached out to shake someone's hand and then immidiately regretted it because you realized that they've got a terrible cold? Seriously, I won't take offense if you don't shake my hand when you've got a cold.

So when we went on our tour of the tower one of our guides had a cold, and I had a horrible feeling that I would catch it. Sure enough my throat started hurting last night, and with every hour it gets worse.

On a positive note we moved to a beautiful new hotel in downtown Burj Dubai - hotel Qamardeen. In my room was an assortment of tiny shot glasses with sweets, pistachios and olives (which i thought were dates, that was a surprise). The hotel is very modern, but has some cool middle eastern looking elements.
Can't wait to check out the pool and the surrounding area. There are a lot of shops and restaurants nearby.
