We were also impressed by all the inlaid stonework and plaster moulding. And the chandeliers! The Mosque has the third largest chandelier in the world, and it is made from Swarovski crystals and gold.
Everyone was clearly in awe! I am so glad we found tine to check out the masterpiece while Mom is here. I am sure will will visit again--though we will probably wait until it is a bit cooler out. We missed the tour this time, but I want to make sure to do that at one point during our time in the UAE.
We don't have anything fun planned for tomorrow because our shipment is due to be delivered!!! (This is very exciting for us, but I doubt my mom is as enthusiastic as we are.) Don't worry, I have something nice planned for next weekend!
Fun Fact: The weekend is Friday and Saturday in the UAE, so we work Sunday through Thursday. This has taken us more getting used to than I realized.
