Back to Oz

We leave Dubai tomorrow morning. Will be sad to go as it's been great. Has been very hot though. We did a tour this morning and found out the temp was 47 deg. No wonder we were sweating.
Dubai is an odd place. Very, very modern but with old ideals. Flash cars and women in burqua. Lots of expats (89% of pop) and heaps of tourists. No Japanese which is odd. Poms, Aussies and lots of Russians.
It's a very clean and very safe place. No alcohol in restaurants but available in hotels. But only certain hours. Seems they want the best of both worlds, Eastern and Western.
