How to be a tour guide

I love this time of the year when we get visitors in Dubai on their lay-over to other countries (mostly India for us). Thank you to Emirates Airlines for the awesomeness! My Texan cousin was here for the weekend, for the first time in Dubai, and I really hope he got a good taste of the weird culture. It's very hard to explain the place and the atmosphere to most people. Dubai is not comparable to the west or the east. It has a little bit of everything.

here's a little taste:
-Eat an authentic lebanese dinner watching the dancing fountains under the Burj Khalifa
-Party with an intense crowd and TIESTO at creamfields on Yas Island,
-Watch christmas carolers and ski bunnies at the mall
-Take an abra ride on the Dubai creek while listening to the wailing muslim prayers across Deira
-Eat Mexican food on the Marina

It's always fun trying to explain the confused emirati culture of Dubai. Apparently it's more than visible with just a weekend here, thats for sure! Thanks for an awesome weekend @suganthpaul. Have a good christmas!
