The story about tickets was on a trip where 2 school friends went to visit their 3rd partner in crime in Dubai.
Why Dubai ? Because the 3rd one works for one of the top Dubai banks & promised to make them travel on a Range Rover for all 7 days.
The one you read above was what we told everybody. The reality is that this was a much awaited trip for us all, living in different cities post we started working. That usually happens with school friends, doesn't it ?
Now, cut short to the day we planned our visit to the mighty Burj.
I was not too excited, because once you visit one of the top monuments in the world, the fascination goes away. And for me, it was always for the Eiffel tower. And I had visited that about exactly an year ago. But for first timers like my friend, he was thrilled.
- He wanted to book the tickets till the top (you have an option to book for lesser floors too)
- He wanted to see the sunset
- He was super excited, clicking all the monumental making stuff which decorated the way stuff
On the other hand, to me more fascinating was seeing his excitement.
Finally, after rows, ques, running, going up the lifts, running & what not, we finally reached at the TOP.
Wow, that view was breathtaking. Not so much because we were on the top of the world, but because Dubai is such a planned city. I could see the sun, the clouds, the fresh air. But all I wanted to do was look at the beautiful city below. It is so pretty ! The roofs seem to be built only for the Burj visitors. So that you can see them, laid down there in all their beauty, aligned against each other, with the water (artificially arranged, but still). It's magical !
