The trip did start in Dubai where tourists are allowed one bus shot as a souvenir and nothing more as it's government buses and this was the place where the monorail went over the embryonic palm tree development at great cost, passing over the expansive building site and issues souvenir tickets which are demanded back when your journey ends. An outragious place Dubai and offering sun, warmth, sea and sand,and sun etc plus lots of very tall buildings. The tramway way was particularly amusing as it more or less ran from nowhere special to nowhere in particular past lots of hotels which also have open top tour buses to take you past other peoples hotels and more tall buildings. The tall building are also connected more earnestly by an automated metro which is almost like an attraction at Alton Towers ( not speaking from experience). This is quite handy as being automated there is no-one to moan that you have enjoyed filming the experience although almost everyone does.
Dubai has other things besides tall buildings and hotels and also has grotty migrant areas where asian workers are crammed into bunk bedrooms 10 to a room or more. It was down this end we pitched up handy for the bus station where you can't take photos, remember you can only take pictures of a building site at great expense. Despite this the drivers were as ever really great and had no bother at all, in fact the bus and tram drivers liked posing for pictures, so good on you folks and shame that Dubai is just another of those places where everyone has to be nice about which actually is just a nasty little dictatorship which the west must suck up to for oil supplies. I'll edit down the whole experience and give one long super length 90 minute DVD.
It hasn't been that busy with DVD order although as soon as Mandy and Sue head off to South Africa later this week I'm sure I'll get inundated. A few models arrived in the post but no chance to look them over, we spent this morning carrying on the mammoth task Mandy started with the rally DVD stock, replacing sun damaged cases, cleaning out the boxes and filling any gaps where DVDs are missing from stock. Lets see what Dubai had to offer them! I've already edited Dubai and it should have a trailer on Youtube by tomorrow. By the way we flew through the 15M hit mark whilst away and the second and third viewing nations on Youtube are now Poland and Vietnam with USA on fourth place.
