You’re right. We didn’t mix up the planes. The picture in the previous post has indeed been taken in Dubai, inside the Mall of the Emirates. And it shows real snow (with up to 400m downhill slopes).
Fun fact: Outside temperature is almost irrelevant as airport, metro and malls are a closed system. While the sun shines outside and it’s about 35°C warm, the shopping mall is well tempered at 19°C and the ski park inside the mall is cooled down to -3°C. Wow.
After about six hours of sitting inside the plane with not nearly enough space to fall asleep, we are now 5139 km and three time zones away from home. Very sleep deprived we’re hoping to get a bit more of Dubai tomorrow.
