Visiting Dubai was so special for me, I got see some friends I grew up with and reconnect others I care about. A highlight of my trip was taking a boat ride through the creek to the old city of Dubai. Like a child I was mesmerised by the sun, borderline tripping at certain points. I kept on telling my friends I felt it was a blessing to experience so much sunlight and how we just don't get sunsets like this in London, city buildings block it all. I don't think they understood my 'spiritual' perspectives, after all they see the Sun everyday. Needless to say Dubai is sort of a dream utopian / fantasy land with amazing food. Everything I ate tasted unbelievably good. I look forward to returning soon.
