Welcome to Dubai

Lately, with a whole family, we visited Dubai. Why Dubai – well, believe me, or not, but I would prefer to go to Baghdad or Damascus, as those are historic cities, but God knows, why someone decided it will be to be a war-zone. So instead of to see the historic places we went to see the biggest building and the Dubai Mall.

Oh, yeah, the Dubai Mall is impressive, especially the giant aquarium with sharks and other fish. Wow, there is even a cage so you can dive with sharks. Imagine this, you are in a cage, sharks surround you, the cage breaks down and the sharks are tearing your body to pieces while people around you are buying mink coats – a product of basic necessity on a desert. Isn’t it a beautiful death?

So just remember…

Let’s leave the mall and go outside. Here, with other people, we could admire the biggest penis, I mean the building, in a world during the fountain-erection show.

Just don’t forget to take your mobile with you to record everything.

Once the show was over we passed the bridge and went to the… another mall. This one was the old Arabic market-style. Yanni (you know), this kind of market hall that you could see in Iraq or Syria before somebody dropped the bombs there.

After this exhausting tour, we went to drink something, just to keep up with the Middle East Western expats’ tradition „Go to Dubai to get drunk”.

By the way, there are still available plots of land, so you can settle down here… on a desert.
