Default 26 Days Of Describing Dubai

We appear to have a schism in the ranks as regards how we would describe Dubai to non-Dubaians...

Starting today, with the letter A, post a word that best describes your feelings towards the city we call home.... Tomorrow we'll move onto the next letter....

I'll start..

Avaricious.....
