Dubai is an impressive place. It reminded quite a bit of Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. They’re both reasonably new cities built with oil money. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, I’m all for progress and enjoy a bit of extravagance. I find places like this very cool, In a way it feels very fake like a giant Disneyland.
I definitely need to go back to Dubai for a few days, it’s not a place I’ll be able to handle for long.
