Dubai is trying to set itself up for having an economy post oil days. They know it is a finite source of income and are looking beyond today to ensure they have a tomorrow. I hope they are not doing too much too soon, though. Several of their developments, Palm island and map of the world, were evidently ill conceived and have some real problems. Kudos for them for trying to get ahead of the oiless future.
I have a cousin working at the embassy in Bahrain. She has some interesting stories about that. My sisters and I are going to Indonesia for a month starting in Sept. They are going there through Dubai, but I am going the western route. I would have liked to have seen Dubai. Oh, well.....
