Yesterday was pestilence, today is flood so I suppose tomorrow is fire....
Flooding outside BurJuman in Dubai, photos taken today
How ridiculous has this week been?
Sunday - many people couldn't get to work because of the traffic snarl ups caused by the closure of roads for the visit of George Bush
Monday - an unexpected public holiday (declared at 4pm the previous day) most major roads were closed and people were stuck at the roadblocks for up to 7 hours.
today - the sky opened, rain's pelting down and Dubai has flooded. The traffic, yet again, is at a standstill.
