    Old Dubai with Ron Pegna

    March 14, 2017 in the United Arab Emirates ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    I met up with Ronny Pegna (Ben Pegna's dad), he has been in Dubai since 1983 and pretty much saw this place transform from a modest Arabic town to a world class mega city.

    Obviously his favorite part of the city is to show visitors the old part which has a lot of the original character of Dubai, according to Ronny, Dubai is in danger of losing the historic heritage to the expense of modernization.

    We crossed the creek in an old-fashion wood boat and walked through a few souks (Arabic markets). On the way back he showed me where they used to live and basically where Ben grew up.

    It was amazing to catch up with Ronny and I am really grateful for his unique perspective on Dubai.

    When Ronny picked me up Luke (Ben's little brother) came along to just say hi. Luke also works in Dubai, the last time I saw him he was 15 years old and Ben and I took him to boarding school in the UK. It was great to see him, his turned into a solid young man from the teenager I remember.

    Both Ron and Luke reminds me so much of Ben and it just makes me miss my friend so much, can't wait to see him again soon.

    Dubai is bloody hot!!

    May 15, 2012 in the United Arab Emirates ⋅ ☀️ 106 °F

    The title says it all....lol
    Not quite it's also quite brilliant.
    We are staying in Bur Dubai, the old part of town right by the creek.
    The hotel is great lovely clean and friendly.
    We did all the touristy stuff, except Sheila missed going up the Birj Khalifa because she was ill.
    She missed a brilliant experience.
    We all agreed that we'd love to go back sometime...

    Alt Dubai

    March 19, 2017 in the United Arab Emirates ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Am nächsten Morgen geht es mit dem Bus durch Alt Dubai. Die Gebäude sind keine 200 Jahre alt und nur wenige haben "überlebt". Bemerkenswert sind die Windtürme. Mit diesen wurde der Wind ins Gebäude gelenkt und es entstand eine natürliche Klimaanlage.

    March 19, 2017 in the United Arab Emirates ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    Dubai entstand entlang des Dubai Creek, einem natürlichen Arms des Golfs mit Salzwasser. Hier entstand zur Zeit des ersten Ölbooms die erste Stadt mit Märkten. Das Wasser wird mit alten Booten überquert. Die Flotte sieht abenteuerlich aus und erinnert an Sindbad.
