The Beverly Hills of Dubai
Diary for Purple Magazine
Dubai, December 2014

Getting vertigo from looking up to the super slim cone of Burj Khalifa, flat sky and airplane birds. Highways before breakfast, all of the best in the world united under single roof of shopping mall and empty pavements. Concrete landscape on the threshold of the desert. Waterfalls at the airport lounge, ski resort in the desert, biggest aquarium, highest skyscrapers, dining under water, architectural pastiche and palm trees dressed in the flag of a proud nation. Welcome to Dubai.
