Ah done that and the skyview Bar Bar Burj Al Arab, boring after the umpteenth time of having to go there on business,
Yep, those places , the surreal world of luxurious excess and flashing flunkies (that one's nice, though I prefer the one at the Sheraton Four Points round the corner on Sheik Zayed Road, has a good happy hour and fancy lighting that changes colour). When your colleague asks if you want to go to the supposed best seafood restaurant in the world, that top floor one down by the Marina, and you say no, because you're dreaming of Warsaw pierogi z mięsem in your favourite dive or Yorkshire fish n' chips at Ahmed's chippy by the rugby league ground. It's 60zl a pint at that seafood place anyway.
Now dolnoland back yard with forrest and fields, little dear wild boar foxes,
Yes, the best. Here it's the same, servants, an apartment that looks like a presidential office, limos everywhere and I'd swap the lot of it to be back home. Too young and too poor to retire just yet though. This was taken on my roof terrace back home in Warsaw, two nights ago, looking out over Puszcza Kampinoska. I'd like to be sitting there now with a can of Krolewskie.
