Starting to get there. Rode to the course with the van driver. The guy has been in Dubai for 40 years! I came here as set designer with a theatre company in 1985 and there was nothing here then. God knows how little there was 40 years ago. The place was beautiful in those days. The beaches stretched for miles. Not a soul to be seen and turquoise almost clear gulf waters. It was interesting talking to him. He is from Pakistan and a really nice man. We approached the entrance to JGE and I could see he and his nephew were shuffling a bit. I waved to the security guy and we were in turn waved through. They both looked at each other. Apparently, If I hadn't been there they would have had to sit waiting for permission for at least an hour. Unfair. Young Tour guy decided to have a go at us when we arrived, for driving up to the booth, which I pointed out we and everyone else did yesterday. I don't know. Give em a walkie Talkie....

Setup went well today though. I will have to arrange things tomorrow and sort out lighting but it's taking shape.
