Air Conditioners to Dubai are as important as conditioner to those curly haired girls in the Pantene ads.
There is always a little hum in the air of the city. You never notice it, till the power goes off (rare occurrence.)
When it does, the city is suddenly eerily quiet. And you lie on the cold marble floor trying to capture the last of the rapidly evaporating coolness.
That's what I remember about Dubai; the eerie silence and perfect coolness, as the future stopped for just a moment.
