|The crazy awesome white clothed dancers on pole things. (My favorite picture from the trip so far)|
Me, Jimmy, Stan and Mike Baer ventured to Mall of the Emirates to get tickets for the David Guetta concert tonight happening in Abu Dhabi. The metro ride to Mall of the Emirates is like an hour long, so it was quite the journey. When we finally got around to getting the tickets, the guy went to sell me mine and told me it was the only ticket left. WHAT?!?! Turns out they had another stack, no worries. So our plan was to head back to the dorms, take naps and then head out around 7:00 or 7:30 ish. Well, we got back to the dorms at 3:30 and at 4:00 Jimmy calls and says, “umm change of plans we’re actually leaving whenever everyone is ready.” So I really quickly jumped in the shower and got ready and met the boys downstairs. Ariel had his car and offered to drive all of us there. So Ariel, Tito, Ahmed, Stan, Me, Mike and Jimmy all hopped in his SUV and headed off to Abu Dhabi. Let me tell you, Ariel is quite the driver. There were a number of traffic circles on the way to Abu Dhabi and I'm pretty sure the wheels squeeked on every one we went around. Don't worry, I had my seat belt buckled and we all got there safe haha.

The best part besides the music was these dancers that danced on these pole things. Okay, no, NOT pole dancers. It's hard to explain. They were wearing all white and they climbed up to the top of this pole and then harnessed themselves in by putting these straps around their thighs. Then they pulled a string that brought a huge white chinese lantern type thing up to cover their body. There were three on each side of the stage. They danced to the music and gradually emerged from the chinese lantern things and were then just flying around on these pole harnesses. Maybe the picture below will help describe it.
