An "Only in Dubai" story

A girl at work recently went on a weekend desert camping trip with a group of her friends. As the group included children and some older people, it was decided to hire a portable toilet for the campsite (what we call a 'Portaloo'). This was done at a cost of AED1000 (about AUD$290). An Indian guy duly delivered the Portaloo to the campsite, which was what they'd expected, but what was unexpected was that he then set up his tent and stayed the entire weekend cleaning the Portaloo each time after someone had used it. Only in Dubai would a Portaloo come with a 24/7 live-in cleaner!


  1. Brilliant- it's stuff like this that makes me love Dubai!

  2. That is amazing! Excessive and crazy but amazing all the same.
    The bag is the Chanel 2.55 (that's it's name, as mathematical as it sounds).
