Living in Old Town Dubai

Old Town is a brand new development, still under construction.

It's separate - and nowhere near - Bur Dubai, which is the old part of town.

(And I suspect "Bur" actually means "old")

It's also at the foot of The Burj Tower

(Which isn't the building usually called as "The Burj", that's technically the Burj al Arab - the worlds most expensive hotel. This Burj is just The Burj)

Which means it's rather depressing to try and get back home.

Because every day you think "ah - I can see the Burj - I must be close now!"

And then you remember that its the worlds tallest building. So its probably still just a little way off....
