While we were enjoying the fireworks at Lorne on New Year's Eve, another dinner guest told us about her recent visit to Dubai. When I naively asked why people seem to be flocking there she showed me a photo very similar to the one above. Another suggestion was that some Saudis visit because it is much less socially restrictive than back home.
Wary of stereotypes I much preferred the Disneyland Aspen in the desert Ski Dubai Resort explanation. It just makes sense to build 5 Star hotels, shopping malls and ski slopes in this arid land.
Is this our carbon future?
