Freki presents Dubai

Dubai... is a mess..

Everything has a halfarsed feel to it and it seems nothing is ever really completed - it's directly hostile to pedestrians and decentralized to an absurd level.
And don't get me started on the insane sharia laws ( that they luckily chose not to enforce in their desperation of acquiring foreign cash ).

But it is also a very interesting place and it has a lot of scraper fan eye-candy to see - and chances are that is what you are here to see

We did have a nice vacation there and I'm not going to say people shouldn't visit - just be aware that it's basically like the old western movie sets where it's all empty and hollow when you look past the facades.





































































































































































That all folks
