A few weeks ago my uncle asked me if i would to join him and my dad in Dubai for some buisness so offcourse i said yes!
So he booked a ticket for me and the adventure begon!
We drove from Holland to the airport in Dusseldorf,Germany and took the plane to Dubai.
We fly with Emirates, one of the best airlines of the middle east.
The legspace was perfect, we had a menucard and free whiskey!
On the screen i saw that we where flying over Baghdad, the weather was so clear at 8km's altitute that you even could see Baghdad!
And 7 hours later we arrived at Dubai airport.
Offcourse like always they pick me from the line for a check.
The guy asked where i came from so i said Holland. The little hitler didn't trusted me so he called some policeofficers with a dog.
After the dogcheck the guy opened my suitcase and my bags. He used his fingers and his nails to check me for drugs.
I was tired and i wanted to go to the hotel en then that stupid Paki started to ask questions about my rolling tobacco, he thought it was drugs or something.
I never had so many problems at a custums hall except in Ecuador.
Finaly we got picked up by my uncles secretary and she drove us to our hotel.
It was already night when we arrived but still we had a good first impression.
When we arrived at the hotel we went immediatly to our rooms to sleep.
My uncle went to his own appartment, he lives in Dubai.
The next day my uncle picked us up at 11:00 to show us Dubai.
First we went to the Jumeirah beach hotel for a lunch.
Everything in the hotel was PERFECT, staff was realy kind.
We took a boattaxi on the creek and explored how amazing Dubai is, 30 years ago everything was desert!!
Then we went to the beach to cool down because it was pretty hot.
So i jumped in the sea and..... the sea was also hot haha
It started to get late so we decided to have dinner and go back to the hotel.
The next day we did nothing, but the day after was a busy day.
We went to a huge place where they had over 70.000 cars for sale!
They had the newest Mclarens,Maseratti's,Lamborghini's,Hummers and every other car you can imagine!!
But we where specially looking for Mini Coopers S and VW Beetles.
We checked hundreds of cars that day so it was time for some diner.
We met up with a friend, of us from Amsterdam that started a new life in Dubai and he suggested to go to the Buddha Bar
So we went to the Buddha bar @ Sheikh Zayed Road, one of the best places to go out in Dubai he told us.
My dad,Stephan and my uncle and his secretary took some sushi and i ordered a simple steak.
The food was good and we had a nice time, but the music there was so loud nobody could undertand each other.
It's just a discotheque with a exclusive restaurant on the dancefloor!
Later the waiter gave me the bill of the steak: €60; !!! i almost got a heartattack, that was the most expensive main diner i ever had in my life!
So we payed and left the Buddha bar and went to a bar near our hotel for a few drinks and later we went to bed.
