Dubai bubble has burst

On the way home we stopped in Dubai for a 22 hour layover. This was more than enough time to see this Emirate. A shining jewel of the United Arab Emirates, this city was built on shifting sands. My wife had been here a year ago, her impression was that in just that short period of time there has been a tremendous decline.

We toured the city on a bus. From downtown Dubai to the new Atlantis Hotel we saw the reclaimed sea, the island homes and the palm shaped islands. A lot of empty stores and construction sites. Buildings along the river have even collaped due to poor concrete. The city seems dirty and dull.
