Here in Dubai..and if the world has suffered a global financial crisis you would never know from being here or rather what was this place like 2-3 years ago. It is American consumerism on heavy duty steroids.....UNBELIEVABLE. The best and worst of the western empire on display here.
I can only describe it as glass skyscrapers of Dallas, the glitz of Beverly Hills, the cars of the Hamptons, and the malls of every urban city...multiple this by 100 and add heavy steroids and you'll get a small taste of what Dubai is like.
Internet services are not free and I'm using the conference center server to update blog..but I hope to post some photos when I next log in before I leave on Wednesday.
