Hi from Dubai

Ten hour changeover at Dubai so I took off into the city. I am at an internet cafe in downtown Dubai, a dynamic fast growing city in the United Arab Emirates. Reminds me of Las Vegas. Lots of new construction here. Cranes everywhere. I heard last year that 17% of the world’s cranes are here in Dubai. This place is fast becoming quite a hub and I am wondering if it will become a place for east-west connections and spiritual learning in the future.

  • I’m a design engineer for a large crawler crane manufacturer, and you’re right, there are cranes everywhere in Dubai. The middle east snaps up every crane that we let them get their hands on. It’s wild.
