Arrival

This is the first time I have ever flown on time and the plane arrived 15 minutes before its scheduled arrival which was great. The plane was full and I was sitting next to a Syrian man who had a lot of stories to talk about and he was very friendly. Turns out this man is the main distributor of Godiva chocolate, and he was asking why I wouldn’t eat sweets, I think I might have insulted him but he was very nice.

When I went to immigration the line was going down the escalator, it was a huge amount of people, the fast track for Emirates was full. Then I spotted the GCC line, I thought it was under construction but it turns out there was one line open. There were only 6 people standing instead of the usual 200 in one line which was the case for all other lines. What amazes me is that they have a lot of immigration officers but still doesn’t seem to be enough.

I also found my bags really quickly since the conveyor belt was stuck and there were three to five airlines per conveyor belt. I saw my bags and grabbed them right away, I went outside to find the hotel car and headed right to the hotel.

I know I have to get up early to go to the meeting and the other things to follow, I know I’m going to feel hungry very soon.

  2. wow man! incredible pics! not surprised with having 200 people in line but u got lucky… doesnt happen often in dubai airport, usually i wait for over 30 mins in line, ofcourse not the GCC line :P anyway, hamdelah al salamy and good luck with the meetings

  3. where are you staying, hotel looks neat and the view is cool except for the construction works?

    Fonzy: Thanks, its a lot of meetings but chugging along!

    pearls: At the Grosvenor House, great view and I don’t mind the construction. Everywhere is construction in dubai! The weather is warm, not for something heavy even at night, slightly humid!

  5. punky

    nice view and balcony:)

  6. nice pictures , what is the name of the hotel , and is that balcony part of your room ?

  7. feels like dubai or maybe the entire UAE is built on water!! u feel fresh just by lookin at their sky.. or driving on the sea side road “Courniche”

  8. cool.. i love the balcony! mashallaah.. but i’m not fond of the construction view..

  9. I find that a lot of construction is disturbing. In fact, I find Dubai to be one gr8 disturbance lately. It feels so superficial. But lovely terrace.

  10. punky: thanks!

    Laziale: yup the balcony is part of the room! Its the Grosvenor House!

    Jacqui: yup!

    Ms.D: Yup, it does feel very refreshing! I just don’t know about the Murky Marina waters!

    This Lady: The view is great from the top, and the balcony is so damn comfortable!

    Shoush: The terrace is nice, and yes the construction is definitely annoying!
