Air Conditioned Bus Stop

That, my friend, is an air-conditioned bus stop (presumably near Burj Al Arab hotel, where one night stay costs about US$ 1,000). Must be nice to be rich! (though why would they take the bus, then?)

Found at Tell Me Something I Don't Know


And it's probably an advertisement for Burj Al Arab, not necessary an indication that it's a bus stop close to Burj Al Arab

I live in Dubai where the bus stops have been launched and it's true - they are fitted with AC so people can escape the 45 degree heat.

However, this photo is clearly posed - UAE nationals (in the dish-dashes) would never take the bus.

h, I was going to suggest maybe they are waiting to be picked up by their limos, but what you say makes sense. Maybe it's an ad. The bus stop is air-conditioned so the limo drivers, cooks, and maids don't melt coming and going to work.

dish-dash?

When you're rich, if you have to wait to be picked up by your limo, your chauffeur's gonna be looking for work.

Seems pretty extravagant just for a bus stop but when you can build your own ski resort in the middle of the desert then why not!

Thanks so much for the look see at our blog! It made my day this morning to see TMSIDK on here! Woo Hoo!

while h is almost right on the mark when he said UAE nationals don't get one the bus, very few are actually as rich as you guys make us sound.

in any case, those air conditioned bus stops use solar energy to generate some (if not all) of the power required by the ACs

Actually, they are bus stops. I was in one and they come in handy during the dog hot days of fall in Dubai. The fact that the leader of a country has money is not an indication that commoners are wealthy. There are many low income individuals who catch the bus in the dead heat of the work day. I was pleased to see how clean the bus stops are, unlike the ones available to individuals in Washington DC. I applaud the UAE adn Dubai for taking care of it's people.
