Let me tell you guys is not all that its hyped up to be. I mean yeah it's a pretty cool place but that whole Oo La La feel that everyone gives or the whole, I luv Dubai...I dunno.
Maybe I came in expecting too much.
Yes, well, that could be a possibility.
But Dubai, in my opinion, seems to beat America as the 'Melting Pot'. You see a true mixture of people. And not the kind of diversity where everyone seems to have wrapped themselves into their own little boxes.
While Dubai does seem to be the leading forefront on the most shnazzy looking buildings and construction/architecture miracles...well let's just put it this way, I can't go into the tallest building in the world because there's a waiting list to get in and it's still being constructed...same goes for the world famous 7 star hotel and that palm thingy that they built on a man-made island.
I've had my share of Oohs but I'm still sitting around waiting for something to hit me and be like Oh la la Dubai is so amazing
Don't get me wrong. It's pretty dang cool but I guess my expectations were raised too much.
On the BIG PLUS side, there's Muslim eatables everywhere aka Halal food aka Kosher food for Muslims aka meat and food that is lawfully allowed for Muslims.
So that means all those years worth of commercials that have tortured me from KFC, Chili's, T.G.I Friday's will insh'Allah (God willing) be shoved back in THEIR faces. Because I will have (insh'Allah) tried that food!!!!
P.S. Some of these opinions have a chance of changing after maybe I have explored Dubai a little more. And that was my disclaimer to all Dubai amazonian patriots...if any.
