A Tour of the Sheik Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi

It may be a stretch to consider Abu Dhabi among tribal art resources. At, least in the manner we normally define it.

But we visited it in February and had fabulous exposure to the local culture, including the Sheik Zayed Mosque - the third largest mosque in the world.

We were very impressed with our tour of the mosque, a video of which is embedded here.

My hubbie and I were in Abu Dhabi last year on a short tourist jaunt from Dubai. I was in that exact spot in your video. That mosque was breathtaking. Talk about feeling small. You can't really see how enormous it is unless you've actually been there.

BTW, awesome blog!! I'll definitely be back. :)
