My sandals were happy in Dubai
I went to Dubai a couple of weeks ago, stayed for 3 nights and 3 days, and I loved it, will not go into details, I just have to point out one thing.
I have been resisting admitting that this country is something to it, and been resisting for years now. Moreover I was always jealous that the achievements they've done could've belonged to Lebanon, since they built a city from scratch while we already had the nature, the Switzerland of the middle east, the snow, the life style...
While cruising around for 3 days there, I felt at peace and that is not because I was on vacation only, but because everything felt so easily accessible, everything you can think about and want, it's there. The roads, the order, the comfort, is there.
I truly felt like the government was not out to get me, unlike how it feels like in Lebanon. Because here, almost every minute of everyday, you feel like the government has hired agents only to follow you around and make sure you are pissed off and stressed the whole time.
Nevertheless in Dubai, I felt like the government simply wanted the residents there to be... happy. And from the looks on all my friends' faces, they were happy.
What do you think?
