Snow and Starbucks in Dubai

Perhaps not the first thing one thinks of when going on holidays to Dubai. At least I thought it was funny and surprising when I came across these things during my visit there. But, despite being located in the middle of a desert, Dubai definitely felt like a modern Middle Eastern city to me. One I am sure has become even more modernized today compared to when I was there in August of 2007.

But what reminded me of that I was in fact in the Middle East was definitely the clothing of many people there. And I really enjoyed the experience of this mix of cultures. Because it made my visit to Dubai very fascinating and refreshing. Which is why I hope for many more visits to Dubai in the future. :p
