This is a photo of the new monorail that is currently under construction across Dubai. I wonder what the same scene looks like now? I'm looking forward to finding out and having a ride on the Palm Island section, which is now up and running. When it is finished, it should help the huge traffic jams that seem to be a constant feature of the city.

I Should Be So Lucky

Last time we were in Dubai, Gail and I were a bit sad as our holiday would be coming to an end, just a couple of days before Kylie was due to play a concert. We had the opportunity of seeing Queen. But it wouldn't be the same without Freddie.

I wonder what band will be playing when we are there?

The Countdown Has Begun

Next Friday (24th) Gail and I fly off to Dubai for a well deserved break. We thought about trying some other countries, but as we like the UAE so much, we just had to go back. This time though, we'll be staying in one of the hotels in the new marina. We normally reside near the creek, but I found this bargain. One we just had to try. As we'll be nearer the beach, we'll be able to explore that area for a change. We might even go and see what Jebel Ali has to offer.
