I took some photos along the flight. Some turned out well and others not so well, but I think you'll get a sense of our journey.
The sun was so bright and nothing but clouds to see, so we closed the blinds to watch movies. I opened after while and caught a the sun setting into the clouds. It was even more interesting to see the sun setting light shine back up through the clouds toward the plane - how upside it seemed.
By the time we reached the Gulf, it was dark. It wasn't so bad though because it was an interesting way to see the cities by their lights in the dark. The first city we could see was Kuwait City in the distance. We saw more along the coast, including the island of Bahrain. The golden lights are certainly a sign of the wealth from the Arabian Peninsula these days. The lights in the Gulf were abundant too. I thought they were all fishing boats at first, but Barry reminded me that most were probably oil rigs. The specked water lights below seemed like a mirror image of the stars above, and like the stars, they'll probably burn out one day....but enough of that.
Here's our day in photos.
