Postcard from Dubai

A short hop to Dubai for a day.  I didn't bring my camera this time, so it's another old photo I'm afraid.  You can tell from the columns on the left bank of the road.  These are now the supports for the metro track, which is almost complete including stations.  The photo above was taken in February 2008.

Dubai is still quiet - but the queue for the taxis at the airport was unbelievably long.

I think things are picking up in Dubai and hopefully they have gotten through the worst. I have a hard time traveling in Ramadan since I try to continue fasting and its tough on the plane since you get thirsty.

I know what you mean... Making the days up later seems harder than doing it now.

Short flight and I was lucky with the timing.

Yup... It's looking almost complete.
