Love these little glimpses into other parts of the planet. Sometimes seem to be from a different planet.  ;D

Just recently a new home delivery service was launched here in Dubai.

It's called Cafu, refuel your car at home.

Wonder if this will work in SA..... :peepwall:

A new building has been finished on the side of Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai. It's called the Museum of the Future - https://museumofthefuture.ae/

Thanks for the updates, Skaiidawg  :thumleft:
I never left Ruwais since coming back for leave on 12 Jan 2020, and then just traveled straight to DXB on 21 Oct 2020 when I left for good.
Was fascinated to see the changes to some of the projects in that interval.
That last building was the most prominent  ;D

Certainly have some good remembrances of the UAE, but busy settling into platteland life in SA now  :biggrin:

My dad used to have a Lambretta scooter of that era.
Interesting thing is that they had shaft drive, and the engine was offset to one side.
If it is riding in a straight line, it would always be leaning over at an angle.
