You can tell it's the Emirate of Dubai (look at the sidewalks.)

I visited a friend who teaches at AUD. Dubai has a great nightlife, club scene and music (liquor is available at the big name hotels and most of the top clubs are in there..) Pretty amazing place.

p.s., here's where the car comes from:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7uweJyXjrM

Don't know why you are getting so worked up about where the car is over the internet?

In Dubai, the lower the number on your plate, the more important you are... Let's say a number 13 crashes into a parked number 94672... it's number 94672's fault since he has a high number plate.

I do find it interesting that the writing is primarily in english. I speak a second language, but would never for a second think to write in it while in my native country. I wonder why its more common there to use a second language to communicate with others.
