On our first day in RAK, Sarah Jane took us out to the sand dunes. These huge red hills of shifting sand are popular with the local aimless youth who tear up and down them in their four-wheel-drives or ATVs - just hours of fun and games!
We parked at the bottom where the road ended and climbed up to get a bird's-eye view.
As we drove back to town, we had to slow for a group of camels crossing the road. The camels in RAK are mainly bred for racing, and are more slender, thoroughbred animals than the big, rangy beasts we saw pulling carts in India.
