Dubai- Welcome to the Sand Pit

Man made islands; indoor ski slopes; underwater hotels; tallest tower in the world; 20 million dollar firework shows; and most recently, newest member to the global financial crisis club. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few years you would’ve at least heard about some of the madness out here in Dubai, the fastest growing city in the world.  I won’t waste any time explaining the experiment in extravagance that has been taking place here in the arabian desert. Representing a small American population and an even smaller Californian surfer population (total of 2), the plan is to post up some interesting shit that people on the other side of the world probably don’t know or care to think much about.
