So about 2 months ago, a friend of mine called me from Dubai. Not really where I expected to hear from him, but it was cool. After a few minutes of small talk, I asked him to pick me up a T-shirt from Ski Dubai. Haven't heard from him since. Haven't gotten any T-shirt either.
Perhaps it's because of the debt crisis facing that poor country. I saw this article on the interwebs today and now everything is making sense.
Dubai, I feel your pain.
