Flag of United Arab Emirates  , Victoria,
Tuesday, July 16, 2013



I was surprised at the amount of Chinese signage at Tullamarine. Good to see.



I'd taken this photo then I noticed that the six seats to my left were unoccupied so I thought that would make a good photo but some bloke decided to change seats and ended up laying down on three of them with his head on the armrest next to me. Bloody annoying.

Interesting to hear the air hostess give the safety instructions in Arabic. Sounds quite nice. Certainly interesting. It's not something we often get exposed to.

Very multicultural crew of air hostesses... if you combined them all into one person you'd have one very good polyglot.



Pretty ordinary pic of the gates, though they are remarkably big. Plus I got to use the eye-fi on my camera for the first time. The SD card has built in wi-fi so my phone can connect to it and grab the photos.



I was tempted to ask whether I could grab a squigee and have my photo taken working but these blokes are probably virtual slaves here so might be a bit nervous.

All the staff selling stuff in the shops seemed to be Pilipino.

And there was an announcement that it was Ramadan so you're not allowed to eat or drink in public. Apparently the airport gets an exemption. And hotels for foreigners too presumably. What a country! What a religion!



So much for this being a non/smoking terminal! This smoking chambers are disgusting and pong like anything when you walk past.



Classic. These girls walked into the gate lounge and immediately lay on the ground. They could have walked in further, it's huge after all, but they had to put on this display where everyone would notice... makes you wonder.



Some building in the distance. Sort of near the airport. Seems a bit tall for a control tower though the cubicle on top looks control-towerish. I suppose in Hobart the control tower's on a hill - here it's completely flat.

Never heard it referred to as Victoria before.

Try to visit Masdar whilst you're there. Its a $40 billion eco-city project, a Sydney architect has got a part in it. Thats how I first heard of it.
