As I wrote in my previous post, the United Arab Emirates is another world. That becomes more obvious as we drove on the six-lane highway from Sharjah to Dubai. I realized that everything is bigger and more modern than what I have been used to civilized standards: big cars (mostly SUVs), wide streets, huge airport, tall skyscrapers, mega malls, artificial islands, air-conditioned bus stops and more.
We were looking for an Internet connection as we cruised around the city. In the bikerscafe in Jumeirah we found an option to use Wi-Fi. Then we discovered a beautiful beach behind the cafe, which was quite empty. Here we stayed the next days until we arrived at a friend of Guillaume. We applied for our visas for India and explored the huge shopping malls (I bought nothing). We met with Abdel whom we’ve met in Iran before. He rented a car and we decided to go together through the UAE.
