Jebel Ali to Umm Suqeim: 15 minutes!
But I digress. The gig was due to kick off at 7pm, so we left Jelly Baby at 6 to allow us plenty of time to crawl along the Sheikh Zayed Road. Well, I don't know quite what's happened, but the traffic was moving at a fairly normal pace so we actually did the trip in 15 minutes. Amazing. Well, normal, but still amazing - if this keeps up we might get our social life back.
Another transport story - Sheikh Mohammed kicked off the construction of the Dubai Metro yesterday. This will involve three years of construction work, and it's gonna cause chaos in Old Dubai. But, as they say, no pain, no gain.
