I was astonished by the architecture of Abu Dhabi Airport. It was beautiful!
However, after some minutes paying attention, it gave me a very odd, plastic feeling of things put together in a way which I might not have wanted them to be arranged (Say, a Prada shop next to a Burger King). It felt somewhat fake and the screens only played the renderings of the terminals’ new expansions. No local news, no cultural shows, nothing else for around 4 hours. It did not leave me a positive impression so far (maybe I was just whiny and exhausted).
Abu Dhabi Airport, baby!
I started (Finally) to tell that story that marked 2013 as one of the best years ever. Follow That Time in Nepal and get an insight of one of the world’s most diverse countries in the most celebratory way.

Really, becoming an expat is not really a decision of bravery. It’s more like a nice opportunity to live the life of a naive, innocent, and curious creature once more. To get a few more golden years of happy, care-free ignorance in a Disneyland of foreign novelty, as sponsored by other people’s culture.
