After 18+ hours of travel, I arrived in Dubai a few hours ago for a 12 hour layover and decided to attempt pictures and a blog post. While it’s considered overnight here, thankfully I’m still enough on Seattle time to process it more like a day spent walking around the airport. There were a few indicators along the way that the airport here is a little different.
Next up, I took a look at the map to find food, restrooms, oh, and GOLD.
And then I realized they’re serious about their Gold. The long counters are separated by karat weight, and ‘special’ vs. ‘regular’. I could only take a quick snap walking by, the security guards didn’t seem too crazy about pictures in this area.
Since I already had my eye on the Lamborghini for Alan, I decided to pick a little something out for myself as well. Tasteful, understated, modest.
After passing the hotel, spa, two story French restaurant and bar, I thought I heard a waterfall. Turns out, I did.
And now, after all that, I think it’s time for prayer. Good thing the prayer rooms are everywhere!
