dubai bullet points of interest

*Clothing items in a discount store: a women's t-shirt made out of a lewd Angelina Jolie photo collage; a pink, rhinestone-studded men's t-shirt with a Scarface decal; neon strappy sandals

*Thanks to censorship, everyone here thinks the lyrics to that song are "I want to be a billionaire so freakin' bad."

*Some women use Islamic clothing as more of a style statement than a means toward modesty.

*We spent a good hour chatting with an Iranian antique art dealer who sells statues of prawns made in China from bull horns.

*Indian sweets are better than Middle Eastern ones. This is probably a good thing from the perspective of my thighs.
*It's kind of embarrassing to be examining souvenir bobble heads that are caricatures of folks in Islamic dress as a woman in a hijab walks by.
