Dubai: The Not So Land of Luxury

Dubai. The shopping capital of the world. The vacation home of Michael Jackson, Iman, and celebrities with money to BLOW. Neighbor to Abu Dhabi which hosts The Emirates Palace, a hotel where a One-Week stay can cost up to $1 Million, yep, SIX zeros.

Apparently, what I naively thought was a U.S. domestic economic downturn is worldwide. Even tapping the pockets of those in the land of luxury. A fellow blogger writes about how construction in Dubai has slowed down, credit card debt is sky high, and the Dubai International Airport is home to over 3000 abandoned cars belonging to people who have fled the country.

Since all the residents or those on visa are leaving, maybe they have some hot vacation deals! Maybe not.

  1. I do agree with all the concepts you have introduced in your post.
    They are really convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are very short for starters. May just you
    please lengthen them a bit from next time?

    Thank you for the post.

  10. Nevertheless, Candy Crush Saga has a beautifully-animated mobile quality to it that seems to lure
    you in like Medusa’s eyes. Police say methamphetamine
    has a grasp on people in the community and they will not give up.

    The next level that gave me some issues in the Candy Crush Saga game would be level 65.

  12. Each time you start your Facebook Farmville game up,
    you find your Farmville character standing in the center of theor farm.
    Thee relationship amongst obtaining coins and leveling up hasn’t transformed too much but new characteristics have routinely appeared
    in Farm – Ville. Build Like Mad – Perhaps the most useful Farm – Vilple hint: you have a loot of choices regarding home furnishings
    and pretty knick-knacks for your lawn, but
    some will give you mre than just a nice atmosphere.

  14. On comba day six we finally encountered stage 4 and stage 5zombies, some of
    which were carrying weapons such as pipes and pick-axes, and later this same night we encountered the first wave of stage 5 advanced zombies, which could see
    in the dark and could throw heavy things with great strength; and we
    suffered two Maine casualties from stage 5 zombie contact.
    In Marsabit and Samburu districts, the Samguru
    and Rendile regularly fight it out wirh the Borana over grazing land and water resources.
