Stars on the cielings at night time
Second glass of wine and some Iron John
Eliot watching movies
Dubai's airport was cyclopean. Like Kazad-Dum sized. Just unbelievable. Planning ahead at Houston paid off and extensive weighings of the gear and measurements of the bike boxes meant that everything came through perfectly fine on the other side. I'm happy to report both boxes and all gear is present and accounted for!
Landed in Dubai about 6:50. It's now ten till midnight, and it's hard to say where the time went. After eliot's parents picked us up, we went back to their place and cleaned up before having dinner. Now we're back at the apartment bedding down, less than 24 hours from when we arrived at the airport. This place is built on a scale that's hard to understand. Oppulance, commodity and crass consumerism already seems so rampant that more than once tonight i had to take a break while walking around festival city. Everything here, as Eliot wisely put it, is built like the stuff they CG in most movies. The whole time you feel like your an extra in some grand sci-fi epic that's being filmed just over there a bit.
