GITEX Dubai and Back


A trip came up and I had to travel to Dubai. I stayed there for 12 hours and traveled on the Metro, argued with a taxi guy, visited GITEX exhibition, went to the launch of Windows 7, visited Mall of Emirates, Dinner and back and that was fun but now my bones are aching.

Three things I loved about this trip was their Metro which is very nice and reminds me of the London underground in some way, GITEX Technology exhibition and Windows 7 launch. I will leave you with the pictures for now...

So tell me why did you fight with the taxi ... its not shocking thou me bnt el blad i fight and curse them all day long ... what was ur story

..::Amu::.. said...

Intl: I liked that too :)

Angelistic: Well I got out of Gitex and signaled one of the Taxi guys to stop..after we sat in he didnt have a meter and the price he told us for the journey from one place to the other was a bit higher so we started negotiating and it ended up in an argument...he didn't stop arguing till I reached the destination and then as well he claimed that he has never met a person like me :D I didn't want to argue but a friend suggested to bargain so it all ended up like this :D

I always have bad experience with taxi guys ;p
