I coined the phrase long ago “there is always a bigger boat” (TIAABB). But here in Dubai, where I’m writing this, they seem to believe they’ve built the bigger boat. Everything is grand size and huge, in-your-face ginormous. The hugeness of the airport, hotels, public buildings, highways, signs—you name it—actually detracts from the ability to see detail. You have to sit and watch, you have to be curious. Otherwise, it’s like Disneyland and the ride will soon be over.
