Once in a Lifetime:
Adventures in Dubai
by Patricia Fry
Once in a Lifetime: Adventures in Dubai isn't just the story of Patricia Fry's 2006 visit to Dubai. It also includes the history of Dubai, a study of Middle Eastern customs and culture and it is enhanced by over 30 color photographs. Read about Patricia's experiences and impressions. And learn about this exotic place and its people. What is so special about Dubai? According to Patricia, "everything."
She writes about the indoor ski slope, the world's only 7-star hotel and the wonderfully, warm people she met in Dubai. She takes readers on a tour into Dubai's history and then into the future. By 2010, this city will boast the world's tallest building, 4 enormous man-made islands and the largest amusement park in the world, to list a few. When Patricia visited as a guest of District 79 Toastmasters, Dubai was considered to have the largest area of construction in the world with 1/3 of the world's cranes and hundreds of thousands of laborers at work in that region.
The architecture here is amazing. One observer said that to view the array of buildings makes one think of a skyline on crack.
Read about Dubai's beginnings and some of the popular sports in this region such as camel racing and falconry. What actually drives the progress in this city? Who rules this region? How do they dress in Dubai? What is the crime rate? What costs more there, water or gas?
Patricia has combined her experiences and impressions with her research to bring you a delightful, entertaining and fascinating story of this amazing Middle Eastern emirate, Dubai.
