Rain that Drops in Dubai

So it’s really raining! After quite a while, here goes the drizzles and the hassle of going out. But rain is everything (although quite unusual in Dubai but it naturally happens!). It’s a sign that something is changing and in this case, the rain today is a transition from hot summer to cold summer which is commonly observed yearly in the late months like November and December.

Funny though that we will be encountering annoyed guests bothering us with questions and comments: “why is it raining where it’s not supposed to be?” “We paid bucks and traveled all the long way from the snowy side of the world to come and enjoy the sun in the Middle East only to find out that it’s also raining here! It’s so disappointing!” (As if we have something to do with the rain! If only we can control it!) What are we supposed to say? Yes it’s also raining here and we can’t do anything about it. There are still a lot of indoor activities and attractions to enjoy rather in Dubai. There is the famous The Dubai Mall, the largest in the world, the ever soaring Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower or you may want to have a glimpse and capture the views along the long Sheikh Zayed Road by taking the Metro from Rashidiya station down to Jebel Ali.

So we don’t have to feel sorry about raining in Dubai. It won’t be long anyway. Let’s just savor it. It’s not bad after all. We’ve been complaining for the long hot summer and now that it rained only for days? It’s ridiculous to complain.
