An explosive morning

Woke up to the clearest morning yet since I have arrived in Dubai.  Good visibility right down Sheik Zayed Road and I worked out that I can just see the top bit of the Burj (tallest building in the world) poking up from a building in the foreground plus as well fairly good views of the Burj Al Arab (the 7 star hotel with the round helipad).  You can make out the latter hotel on the left hand side of this photo.
A clear morning
Decided to celebrate with a beautiful run along the beach.  Lyn would have loved to have done Qi Gong down there this morning – clear and fresh – but hardly anyone swimming! 
Came back and the view had changed a bit.  About 7.30 this morning there was an explosion in a factory in the industrial area about 10 km away.  My photo is not nearly as good as the ones in the Gulf News.  Apparently, people had been storing illegal fireworks in a toy factory.
