Happy 41st National Day to the UAE.

It's all very red, green, white and black across Dubai with giant flags and brightly lit buildings to celebrate our 41st National Day and I'm sure it's the same across the Emirates. 

I'm staying home away from the crowds, but if you are out and about celebrating this day in the UAE, hope you are having a great time. 

I will leave you with this "UAE - Then and Now" video which I thought would be suitable to share with you on this day (the video feels a bit corporate, but it does include some great archival footage).
