Incredible India

Incredible India

In the heart of India Around 3 years ago my arse was fitting armchair in the suburb of Belgrade (Kumodraz city). The clock showed 4 PM and that was a sign that Tv channel needs to be moved to number 701 or the Travel channel. Approximately 5.1 times per hour there was a commercial about Incredible India. Spiritual, monumental place which is the homeland of 1.3 billion people never actually made a big impression on me. I was deceived by numerous viral videos of primitive people who harm each other with no reason. I was sure that my foot will never step on Indian soil. Three years later here I am, standing in a queue for eVisa at Indira Gandhi airport in Delhi. To be frank, I will never do that if there were not a lot of amazing Indian people in Dubai who convince me to try. Obviously, my mother wasn't convinced. A daily controller of my digestion tablets collection, she was the only difficulty I felt in...

Words you need to know in Dubai!!!

Words you need to know in Dubai!!!

My father used to say: "Speak Serbian so everyone can understand you". Although it might work "u Bec" or Mönchengladbach, in UAE it's a different case. Dubai is a home of 100+ various nationalities. Most of them eat biryani so knowing Arabic will not make much difference. English is the first language, but knowing English will not make you better than others. (Having their passport will do).

Taxi in Dubai

Taxi in Dubai

Did you know that  if you stop a taxi from the right side of Sheik Zaid road, you might save up to 10 AED?   In Dubai we are lazy. Let's say that 50,48% of people are using taxi along with the metro. There are 15 000 cab drivers driving around in the city on every moment of the day. According to my calculations monthly cost for taxi is approximately 400 AED~100 Eur. Starting fee is 5 AED but the minimum amount you have to pay is 12 AED. Consequently,  the logical question arises --> How to save as much you can?   Normal people would say ( "Don't go with the freaking taxi and use the bus or buy a car!"). Well yeah, but where is the joy in that when you cannot have a nice and cosy conversation with "the Boss"). Where else you can hear pleasant Punjabi music which will bring Nirvana in your life? NOWHERE!!!!   So shout up and focus on your route. Dubai is one big crossroad. If you miss...
