Welcome To Dubai - #196


This is the first sight you will see when you land at Dubai (DXB) airport.

It gets especially crowded around midnight when a lot of the planes arrive. At this time of year it is not so bad, but land at midnight in mid-August for the first time and you'll be overwhelmed with the oven like temperatures and braying crowds...

Marhaba habibi!

Not quite midnight, but I arrived at 10.30pm on the 5th August. By God, it was busy, and when I finally got to the outside, it was like turning a hair dryer on.

Dubai humidity is just hideous! I arrived at 10pm Oct 1 and I felt like I was a Chinese dimsum inside a steamer!
