When people find out I've been to Dubai I get all sorts of questions about what it's like. They see all the shots of huge buildings, lights, yachts, opulence and want to know more about it. I've tried explaining that the Dubai I visited is nothing like what it is today but they really don't get it. Well today I found on the web a picture of Dubai in 1991 and a current one, pictures really are worth a thousand words. This is perfect because I was there in 1991 and 1993 so captures what I remember perfectly.
