Wouldn't you know it....

...back in India and the internet is down. It's like a warm welcome to us that shouts, "Welcome back to the Land of Sucky Infrastructure!"

We had really good snaps of our second day in Dubai, thanks in large part to a six hour extension we had because I made us miss our flight (more on that later). I'll upload from the office soon.

In the final summary, Dubai was interesting - and a little bit of a downer. It was materialism in the most obscene manifestation we have ever seen. I mean we like nice things, too.... but that place was excessive. Mildly revolting, really.

In the words of Tom Holtmann in a recent Face Book entry "I hope Dubai is not the future."
