Dubai is full of surprises. When my friend J. invited me to spend an afternoon at hers on the Palm to chill and catch up by the beach, I didn't know I would find myself face-to-face with polar bears. Three of them to be precise. I always found the Palm a bit awkward to be honest. It makes me think of some kind of lost Atlantis, a fantasy place from an other era with weird towers, streets that are too calm and this creepy ice-cream truck that plays a lullaby that scares the hell out of me as I can hear getting closer to me just like in a horror movie. Now I can add polar creatures to the painting. The Palm definitively is an enigma for me. But a pretty one.
