The last montage of photos I took during the trip. The image above reminds me of the Coldplay song ‘City of Blinding Lights’. It was taken atop the Burj Khalifah in Dubai, the tallest building in the world (see it in the second last photo). It really makes me wonder about the ceaseless change in the UAE and how it will affect this generation of people. Several major projects are slated to be completed in the coming years so who knows, the country may have changed beyond recognition by the next time I visit. But I’ll feel a tinge of sadness at the erosion of native culture and tradition.
