UAE National Day December 9, 2008

Filed under: U.A.E. — visnar @ 20:19


on December 2nd was UAE’s 37th National Day

There were celebrations (parades, fireworks…) throughout the country.
Friends told me that I need to go on Jumeirah Beach road and join others driving up&down.
Why not, lets go! So me and Tomaž were almost 3 hours driving up&down and enjoying with others.

It was amazing! Hundreds of young men draped flags on their 4x4s and sports cars and plastered them with stickers of the nation’s rulers and the UAE flag. They were playing loud music, and everything it looked like a carnival or a celebration of winning an important football match 🙂

I can only say what a huge national pride!

I am here already for two weeks, but time run so fast every day that I totally forgot on you my friends, to get you know how am I doing.

Tomaž went back home yesterday, so first I tried to catch some sleep and get prepared for my second part of visit.

A feeling when I land on Dubai int. airport was amazing, I couldn’t wait to meet Sri, Saud, Abdulla, Thamir, Hala, Renata, Bong, Ali… many of my friends I still need to meet 🙂

Sri did me a huge favour and got me a place to stay for first week in Dubai Marina:) Sri, thanks a lot, you saved me again! Cause it was Tomaž’s first time in UAE, I need to showed him places, best party corners, introduced some of my friends…. He got a feeling about most of things, how everything works here, about people… Of course we also worked, but only half of a day 🙂

First time it happened that I had fun in Dubai also with my Slovene friends (Brane, Klementina & Urška), who were there same time as me, each with own reason – Brane is trying to start a business, Klementina came to visit her boyfriend and Urška came to enrol at the multimedia school. (more…)
