funny thing happened on the way to the colosseum


Recommended Posts

In Dubai we have a place called Dragon Mart... It's like an giant industrial Mall that sells lots of Chinese stuff. The place is developed by the Chinese, run by the Chinese and manned by the Chinese. You can literally buy an engine for a Volvo Lorry next to an outlet that sells outdoor fairy lights... They have everyting! They have shops branded that look just like DeWalt etc...  with product that look identical, except for the name... There are walkie talkies that are very popular in the region for offroading in the desert, but they are on military bandwidths... so highly regulated. But they are freely available in DM, branded as Motorola et all.


I was in a specialist shop that deals with cafe table pods and tops & when I asked them to assemble a table for me, they produced a genuine blue Bosch drill... I had to laugh... here I was in in a place where they had everything; copies of the best gear; fakes; cheap alternatives... yet when it comes to reliability they actually use the real thing.


Anyway, that's my story for the day
