Entry from: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates Entry Title: “Mosque and Desert Safari” Entry: “Cynthia and I began the day with the 10 am tour of the humongous, new Sheik Zayed Mosque, which just opened in 2007 and is the eighth largest mosque in the world, with the capacity to accommodate 40000 worshipers at once. Female visitors are required to wear abayas and head scarves to enter the mosque, and can borrow these for free. My outfit, which consisted of a dress with a hemline just below the knee and a cardigan that came to my elbows, must have been extra scandalous because I was stopped at the first abaya stand just outside the parking lot. Other female tourists were stopped at a second table closer to the mosque. It appeared that male visitors were allowed to wear whatever they wanted, including ripped short and t-shirts. Putting the abaya on was transformative. It looked and fit like a graduation gown. I was instantly hot and less able to use my peripheral vision. While I’m sure many women wear abayas made of silk and other nicer fabrics, this was definitely polyester and must be nothing short of hell to wear in the warmer months. I wonder if it would be possible to rig a fan under there like some Disney characters have inside their plush costumes. Temperature issues aside, I have to admit
