Dubai Madness - caucasian cuisine

These pictures from Dubai are amazing. The place is pretty nuts by all accounts. Anywhere there’s loads of cash and a deeply religious heritage is bound to be a little edgy.

Gold everywhere, top-notch expensive hotels, huge pools, ground breaking architecture, loads of sports cars, pet lions, bikinis and burkas; and of course international cuisine (see above).

Take a look at the following snapshots and decide whether or not you would like to pay the place a visit.

Although, having said that, the arse seems to be rapidly falling out of their economy. It is not uncommon to see sports cars abandoned near airports. Foreign nationals who have realised they aren’t going to be able to pay off massive debts have just cut their losses and jumped on a plane out of there:
