You've got to love the Magic Mushroom

Another of the wonders of the Gulf has to be Abu Dhabi's old Airport Terminal Building, the magic mushroom to its friends. Someone was telling me its days are numbered. I don't know how true that is. But before it goes the way of the dodo, let's be grateful for the eccentricity that produced one of the weirdest inner spaces in the region.
This is, by the way, the 200th post in the Paranormal Hotel blog. Perhaps not an Earth shattering achievement, but it's been a lot of fun along the way. Thanks for reading my ramblings!


  1. Looking forward to the next 200! Thanks for a riveting read, Para.


  2. Thanks EoD - have a virtual glass of champagne on me!

  3. Wow! Somewhere I've never been. It resembles a Dr Who set.

  4. Hi GG - It's a very weird place. That central pillar flares out and becomes the ceiling and then the boundary wall, and all done in expanding hexagons. There's also a pleasant little piano bar. As airport terminals go, it's a good one.

  5. Finally, I've seen it! Walked through the Mushroom this morning at some ungodly hour.

  6. GG - Good to hear that. I'm sure you'll agree it's, well, different!
