Hello from Dubai!
This place is amazing. It's like New York meets Vegas meets let's-make-everything-here-the-world's-tallest/biggest/craziest/coolest thing. I'm hoping to put together a little video post to share with you all so I can sort of bring you along with me as I go exploring this insane city (dubbed "the center of now"... which is cheesy but also kind of accurate). When packing for my trip, I tried to choose clothes that would be good for the weather (over 100 degrees every day!) but that would still keep me covered. Dubai doesn't have dress laws like other Middle Eastern destinations (the culture here is very westernized), but I still wanted to stray away from things like low necklines and shorts.
