One of Dubai’s aesthetic qualities is that it leaves you with a certain impression, it always provides you numbers, data and facts to back up that impression. It’s an emotional attraction that those around you may describe as favoritism. But I feel a sense of pride every time I witness an Emirati achievement in human advancements.
Take Metro Dubai as an example. It’s the first modern transportation experience in the Arab world. Dubai has produced figures stating that the number of passengers reached 33 million in the first three months of this year. It proved wrong all those who had warned that the Metro would not be successful in a Gulf environment.
In the list of achievements, it is stated that the ”UAE’s GDP has doubled more than 190 times during the past 40 years”Badria al-Bishr
