Since 16 years now I have been testing for the German SURF magazine. A 5 week stay in South Africa where we test dozens and dozens of new 2011 boards and sails.
This year I had 54 hrs flight with layover in Dubai, which is an very interesting place.
Clean, any littering is a $150 fine
Hot, between 25 in the winter and 50 degrees summer
The latest and the greatest, one building is bigger and taller than the other.
Modern, even the bus stops are air conditioned
Here are a few sights of Dubai.
Cheapest room here only $4000 a night...
Huge Hotels, this one with an oversize aquarium.
A couple of hours later, I was sitting in the next plane again to Cape town.
Aloha, this time from Langebaan. South Africa
