Travel channel is back it seems, but this time not so pretty: Dubai looks like an endless construction site where they are building Disneyland mixed with Las Vegas. Actually more precise would be to describe it as an American suburb with a Muslim touch. Whatever, it all too manicured and everybody works for somebody and nobody is there just because they want to be, and maybe thats because there's no there there. The conference is taking place right on the beach, and it is kind to weird and slick and poetic and somehow freshly abandoned. Looking through the palm trees you can see beach chairs whose rooms probably cost €1500 a night, gazing towards the sunset factories.
