The little things make the great cities
Apologies for giving you guys nothing to rant on about for a while (Farrukh & Incognito my sincerest goes to you), truth is I am out of the country. For the last week I’ve been in one of those cities that is filled with charm, you know the little things. A café here and there, an engraved quote over a dirty public toilet, the restaurant with a story behind it, the witty kid who wants your money, the locals who are oh so similair yet heaps apart…you get the idea. Seeing and experiencing all these things over again made me spark up a discussion with a friend of mine. ‘You have 10 years and a green light on all your decisions, how would you inject the little things into Dubai’. We rambled on a bit about how the people make a city, then how the city makes the people, we spoke about history and time both concepts that can’t be forced, we spotted an old man on the streets and reflected on how young everyone in Dubai is…then after a good hour we were still left confused…So ladies and gentleman…your thoughts?
