Dubai: Image and Reality

by /

I made my first trip to the Middle East earlier this week. I had no clear conception of what to expect when I landed after my 13 hour flight from New York City. I had read the major story in Vanity Fair about Dubai, which reinforced all of the stereotypes of fun in the sun, […]
