Trip Report Dubai, I'm Hot But It's Cool.

With my kind of like a “Rock Star” tour of South East Asia over, I Facebook dear uncle with one more request. I want to take “The Wrong Way” home and circle the globe while doing so. Instead of heading East from Asia, I want to go West.

A check of my Swiss bank account and I see that it has increased a couple of zeros. My uncle has come come through for me, again. A logical step for me to take the wrong way home is to head to Dubai. In doing so, I can follow M.I Ghost Protocol and visit the world's tallest building.

I arrive in Dubai to discover as expected that it is not only hot, it is so hot that even my sweat is sweating. This time of the year the high temperatures normally exceed 100 degrees with probably 90 percent plus humidity.

If I could afford it, I would spend just one night at Burj Al Arab to cool off. However, I don't think my dear Uncle Sam would spring for about a $1,000 plus per night much less up to $8,000 per night for a Rock Star suite. So my Rock Star status dies in Dubai and I settle for a less than $8000 per night suite.

Nonetheless, I am going to have a great time in Dubai even if I can't do it as a Rock Star.
