unfortunately, due to the terrible state of the current economy and the fact that everyone is POOR, nobody is looking to build five star hotels and resorts right now.  probably because nobody can afford to GO to one.  therefore, jonathan and i will look like this very soon, as we head to the airport for our final departure from dxb:


good news is: i get a chance to appreciate all of those things on my list a lot sooner than expected.  bad news is: i am looking for anyone with any design job leads.  let me know if you are that someone.

see you all soon!
