Dubai

The city of Dubai is a collision of contrasts - tall skyscrapers next to flat desert, opulent malls next to humble spice souks. In my short time there, I got to experience many of these. Because my hotel (Sheraton Four Points Bur Dubai) was close to the river and souks, I got to spend time walking through the mostly Indian-run markets and the old Persian city Bastakiya, during day and night. We drove down the main drag, through giant skyscraper canyons, and we took a night to wander through the Dubai Mall and watch the fountain show in front of the impossibly high and beautiful Burj Khalifa.
