Dave Garfinkle will show slides of his recent trip to the Middle East including Jordan, the UAE, and Oman. In Jordan he visited spectacular Petra and its surrounds, the capitol of Amman, and Aqaba where he spent an incredible evening with a local family. He visited all seven of the Emirates, exploring the fantastic architecture of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the laid back “anti-Dubai” of Umm al Qaiwan, the desert dunes, and relaxing on the beach near Fujairah. Oman included exploring the historic city of Muscat, with the incredible Sultan al Qoboos mosque, and a dhow excursion through the Norwegian-like fjords near Khasab.
Dave became addicted to travel over 50 years ago and has roamed the world since, seeking the unusual and capturing it on film. He has presented several previous slide shows at Distant Lands.
