David Farley doesn’t really answer that question, his article about looking for banh mi in Vietnam is still worth the quick read. (Meanwhile I am grumpy that I can’t find banh mi where I am right now. And yes, I am too lazy to just make it by myself.)
I am not sure what I did to earn that but Lara nominated me on her Backpacking Asien blog for the “Liebster Award” blog meme. (Thanks!) If you understand German, you might want to go read her answers. Go ahead, I’ll still be here when you’re done.

Here’s what I don’t like about traveling: new places, different time zones, luggage, making friends in B&Bs, walking, learning, exploring, navigating, local color, inscrutable customs, unfamiliar public transportation, exchange rates, foreign tipping etiquette, renting bicycles, the expression “when in Rome,” international adaptor plugs, jetlag.
But I’m not here to talk about what I don’t like. I’m here to talk about what I do like. And that’s airports.

Vanity Fair has a feature on the Dubai Airport and Emirates. The timelapse video is pretty nice. [via]
