Flying the Coop

I fly out of here in five days now and I’m getting very excited. I’ve also been bedridden for 3 days with the flu, which has made the last-minute packing a real bugger.

Last night the Atlantis resort opened in Dubai and the BBC is running a story on the event ‘Credit crunch? What credit crunch? £20 million spent on a one night party including fireworks and Kylie Minogue (whose eyes look unnaturally Chinese). The story shows the latest mall to have opened last week ‘The Dubai Mall’ which is apparently the largest in the world. It also shows some housing on the new Palm Jumeirah island. It’s the best look I’ve had at life in Dubai and it seems like a cross between Darwin and Las Vegas. Darwin with shops. I really can’t wait.
