Dubai Metro!

I took the metro yesterday for the first time. It’s been open for a month now, but there are only a few active stops and the usual places that we commute to and from don’t afford us the opportunity to use it. There is a stop still under construction right at American University in Dubai and we can’t wait until the day that one opens. That probably won’t happen until next spring though. But here are some pictures of my ride from the Mall of the Emirates and the Jafiliya Station just past the central business district. It was smooth and comfortable. The train kept pace with the 100km/hr traffic on the adjacent Sheikh Zayed Road. It took 15 minutes from boarding to disembarking for an approximately 20km journey.



































Timeless? What time is it? But at least you can’t fault the designers for being timid with color and texture…
