With me as houseguest, stocking up on toilet paper is a must, and we forgot to buy some last night at Spinneys. But do not stress. Bevan tells me Dubai can be a very lazy place, and much like ordering a pizza, you can pick up the phone and order anything you like.
Five minutes later, a delivery man arrives with a massive package of TP on his bike. This was a source of amazement. Need OJ? Smokes? A loaf of bread? They will deliver it, with no extra charge. But no alcohol, of course. Unless a restaurant is attached to a hotel, alcohol is not served at restaurants, and you need a drinking license to have booze on your premises. I am getting used to the Muslim way. And juice with dinner.
TIP: Run out of something insignificant on purpose and try this deliver-anything thing for no charge, it will amaze you too.
