Dubai, a large, vibrant, metropolis with ribbons of traffic clogging the roads in every direction.
Palm trees and mosques, peppered in amongst the towering skyscrapers.
Opulent shopping malls complete with indoor aquariums, ice rinks, ski runs and luxury hotels.
Throughout the day the wailing of the call to pray fills the air and it’s hot, very hot.
