A few Pictures from Dubai

In 2009 I was travelling from FRA to BKK and missed my connecting flight in Dubai. I would say it was part my fault but also a stupid was to tell customers which flight is next. Made it in time to the gate. The next flight was up on the board. Hong Kong – I wanted to go to Bangkok. Since I had no clue what time it was in Dubai I took a seat and flipped open my MacBook. After that flight was gone the next flight was Sydney or something. Wait – where is my Bangkok flight?? That was the flight that just left. Great – instead of putting Bangkok and Hong Kong up to avoid confusion. Well the visa was free and the next flight in the evening – I walked a bit in the city.

And finally how you convert the exit row seat in NO seat at all!

by helping old lady – thata – that is. now i sit in the dubai mall and not in the bangkok mall! did miss the plane. great!!
it is like china over here – everywhere construction but no workers – 95% is on hold. nothing is going on. and now with the “new crisis” over here – who knows!
at last the subway is not as expensive as in munich. and i did found a french supermarket with real nice baguette. and it was only 0.5 € 🙂
i shall now retreat to the airport again and hope for a flight tonight.

I am in Dubai…

and they made me walk 30 minutes from out of the plane to the departure gate – tsss.
How can you build an airport like a pencil??
And why can the planes not dock somewhere in the middle??

At last there is free internet and lots of power plugs. Did never see that many people sleep – something to keep one entertained while walking forever and a day.

The flight was ok – emirates has more than 600 different channels: movies, news, games and other stuff. no way to get bored. as i had my vegetarian menu 1st the guy that served the regular food did not know i had eaten already. so he asked me what i want and i told him the fish. he had one special fish menu left that he gave me instead of the regular fish. so i had even 2 times food 🙂

Ludger took me and his driver for dinner in shanghai. Went to a nice place and had good food. Than his driver took me to the airport. i have to say that it is quite different when you have a limo service instead of an old santana taxi!
Cheers Ludger!!
