Dubai International Airport

I had a longish layover in Dubai. I chatted with the Filipino staff (who recognized me as a kababayan but were thrown off by my accent) and refreshed myself in the free showers. I was one of the few Americans on the United flight to Dubai not connecting to Afghanistan or Iraq; I was disappointed that Emirates didn't provide a second meal or a goodie bag, but I was impressed with the inflight magazine, which re-printed an essay by Joan Didion. For some reason I couldn't sleep on the flight to Dhaka, so I watched "Battle: Los Angeles" and "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader."

One of the many available amenities.

The night "sky" from inside.

:( will have to fix the pics!

I was hoping for a visit to Dubai but unfortunately I'm traveling on a diplomatic passport and the office won't pay for a visa. So disappointed!
