I had great expectations of the airport in Dubai, but it turned out to be an absolute disappointment. I thought that there would be golden fountains and excessive buildings, but it turned out to be a lot of marble and an enormous duty free area which looked the same at every gate. It was pretty boring and I was happy when our four-hour layover was over. Next stop is Cape Town Airport. That is the thing with expectations, but I blame all the travel posters of Dubai which you eventually see in the subway stations.
