Tuesday, Sep 25 — Dubai

My Emirates Airlines flight 128 Airbus 330 lands in DXB Dubai International Airprt, UAE. I am met at the airport by my former China traveling partner, Louise. and her flatmate Chuck. They take me back to her apartment. On the way we stop at a bakery for some tasty Arabian bread and hummus.

My traveling companion Louise and I hop aboard Al-Khanjry Tranport’s Muscat Dubai Express bus from Dubai to Muscat, Oman.


Thursday, Oct 4 — Dubai

My bus exits Oman in the early morning and we arrive to the Dubai Spice Souk soon after. I take a taxi to the Dubai Youth Hostel at 39, Al Nahda Road, Al Qusais Area. I take another taxi and figure out where my bags are. I take a swim and head back to my hostel. In the evening I wander around Dubai Creek area and enjoy a shisha pipe with local flavor.
