The older I am the more I understand modernisation and globalisation isn't always progress.
Weirdly, I made this comment the other day. Dubai becomes less and less 'different'. It's never been a hard place to live, at least not since I arrived in 2011, but it's always been a bit backwards in ways.

Now, every obstacle, difference, quirk, weird trait is slowly being removed. It's an odd thing to dislike, or see as a negative but I sort of do.....as you say, it just leaves the money.
