Pit Stop: Dubai
Our flight from Jo’berg to London was through Dubai. The ticket became substantially cheaper if we stayed in Dubai for a few days, and we were happy to oblige. Anna had never been to the Middle East and we were both curious about a place made so famous for its excess. We wondered if there was more to the story.
Because Anna and I are into a little less bling than the new Dubai offers, we opted to explore some other parts of the city. This did not disappoint. Dubai is a modern day crossroads, a center of trade, and there are so many different groups coming in search of a new start. It’s fascinating to walk through older parts of town with so many different nationalities represented. Here are few things we saw.
