Dubai, United Arab Emirates (Dubai Marina) “The City of Gold”

April, 2019

 

  • Coming from India, first two things I notice: no hoking! And, the cars actually stop for you when crossing the street.
  • Surprisingly, the AQI is terrible at around 150 for the past 24-hours.
  • Obvious, but extremely nice buildings, landscaped everything, expensive cars, expensive boats
  • Uber Black are Tesla Model S (was only a few bucks more to opt for this)
  • Extremely walkable (this is surprising to me)
  • Family-friendly: there are tons of kids playgrounds all over
  • As close to an alien society as I can remember. What I mean is based on people clothing. Some people are wearing these large things, of course, the women are robed up, some men wearing white robs, then there are western type clothing. On a side note, I really like this. I wonder if how we dress will become more varied as most places I go, everyone wears the same thing.
  • No homeless people
