City of wealth

If you are looking for a place to spend all your money! I recommend Dubai! This city that has no real attractions except for the fancy malls and incredibly expensive hotels! While driving in this city you can see the wealth of this city! A state of the art modern buildings! New towers are arising everyday. Several artificial islands have been made to built new fancy projects!

It's so different than any other place! The weather is awful but it's the summer and the high season in this place is the winter! Everything is expensive but you can find EVERYTHING you want!

The main attraction for me was the dunes of the desert! Just like in Sinbad or Ali-Baba….dunes of golden sands! I LOVED IT!

One thing that I really hated was the fact that although this city is an Arabic city, the Arabic language came 4th in important after English (not the English that we know but the Punjabi-English), Punjabi and Urdu come before the Arabic! I spoke no Arabic except with my friends! It's shame, I think!

Anyways, it was interesting to see what this city is about! I wanted to have a dinner at Burj Al-Arab but they have a dress code and I had no formal cloth with me! So I ended up saving paying 150 USD for dinner! Haha…no regrets!

I'm now at Dubai international airport, which is a piece of the art itself as well! In few hours I will be home! Allah yestor!!!!

Ihsan! Marhaba, Kayfa halak?

Holy crap, you've been in MY city and I was not there!!

Sorry, Ihsan, I was on holidays in Germany and last 3 weeks before the holidays were hell, I didn't make it to answer ANY emails..sniff..arrrrggg. Would have been nice to catch up. Let me know how you are, and yes, Arabic is not that important (apart from for me, since I work for Jordanians, well, Palestinians). Dubai is a crazy town, but I cannot help but like the life here, mostly because of my good friends, the work is a bit boring (not in quanitity..NOOOOO, not all all, but in quality). I am trying my best pieces of Arabic here, I hope it's kinda alright..humhum..be good man and

Ma'a Salaama!!
