Flag of United Arab Emirates  , Dubai,
Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Today I shot video out of the shuttle, taking me and some other expats back to their home. The good thing about my driver is, that his main goal is to bring us fast from one airconditioned bubble to the next one. I think, that is better than getting stuck in  traffic jam captured in the boring Shuttle on the 8 lane motorway.

By the way, if you want to cross the 16 lane motorway at a particular location, and it was not planned for somebody to have the intension to pass the road exactly here, than you have to get a cab. This will take 5 kms to the next exit and back - just to reach the other side of the road. Strange, isn't it.

Coming back to the video: I think, it is quite an impressive view on the Dubai skyline - although knowing that more than half of the buildings is empty and is related to various investment objects owned by other corporate raiders from other countries. But that's another topic...

The toothstick on the right side of the video is the Burj Khalifa building (height 829,8m). You can guess the height of the other "smaller" skyscrapers accordingly.
