A friend's suggestion to observe the massive Airbus plane landings at D/FW Airport, led Mary to take a brief trip on Emirates Airlines to Dubai.

The amenities onboard the plane made the long flight comfortable, and there were many sights to behold after arriving in The United Arab Emirates.

For additional photos from this trip, and a transcript of this story, visit the Mary Clark Traveler Blog.

Hear Mary Clark Traveler Tuesdays at 4:50 or 5:50 during All Things Considered on KETR.
