At the start of the trip, we really weren't sure what to expect. Though I had a few friends who visited Dubai in the past, the crazy economic situation over the past few years has made us uneasy about this trip. Actually, we originally planned to go in February of 2011 but cancelled when unrest arose with protests in nearby countries. As we got closer to December, we continued to wonder if Dubai would be crowded and bustling with activity or empty and desperate for tourists. As much as I tried to read about it online, I kept getting conflicting information and eventually decided that I would find out for myself when I got there.
Soon enough, we took a short flight to Atlanta to connect to Dubai.
