This is what we get up to, you and I, when your Bubaa is abroad and I have to get about town with you in tow: we ride the metro!
The Dubai Metro has been operational since 9th of September 2009, and no word of a lie, I have been such a loyal customer that entire time – what with no wheels of our own – using it to get around from our home at Financial Center to the end of the lines Rashidiya and Ibn Battuta.
Now that you are officially a toddler, alert to the outside world and excitable about things like trains and stations, wheels and escalators, you’ve taken to commuter status like you were born to it. Cars and taxis you really dislike, but trains and metros? Love ’em!
