The first real stop was a short lay-over in the magnificent Dubai. Ok, let us be honest: 1 hour waiting in line for customs, and a brief round-trip drive with the metro to the other end of the city.
There are only a few things to say. Firstly: so many BIG buildings. Secondly, so many BIG buildings being built. We actually met some architect dude who claimed to be the responsible for a brand new mega project: “Two separate buildings connected by a sky-bridge” he said. To which Joske replied: “Oh, so something like in Kuala Lumpur”. That may have hurt his feelings a bit, who knows 😛 Lastly, Joske would like to add that “A lot has changed in 5 years”.
After 6 hours of architecture-worshiping, we jumped on our next plane to swap wealthy Dubai for Nepal. Cannot wait!
