A Visit to Paradise

I've never thought a lot about the Guinness Book of Records, other than marveling at the luck of living in the town with the world's longest candy counter, but we seem to be doing a good job of hitting the UAE Guinness spots: the largest indoor ski area; the largest sheet of plexiglass; the world's largest building (okay, we've only seen the outside - we still have to do the tour); and now, this weekend, we visited the Al Ain Paradise Gardens - which has the world's largest display of hanging flower baskets.  It was a perfect pick me up after last week and a weekend of resting. 

Here are some of the photos from our visit:

The best part was this garden visit took place in February (which means a lot when you are from northern NH).
