Monorex were invited out for a Virgin Radio launch party in Dubai - it was a swift stealth trip as we only had one night there (two full days)...so we decided on making the most of it and not really sleeping too much.
We saw quite a lot of the city driving around in the car - it was an amazing place that adds a building to its portfolio every month or so....But the whole place feels a bit of a ghost town, even walking around large shopping malls we seemed to be the only people in the area??
But once 9pm came around on the Friday - the peeps came out of hiding, as Virgin laid on one HUGE party with free booze and food for invite press and selected people only! As usual we destroyed the bar and the guys mad some headlines with their live artwork..Straight after the party we were on a 5am flight home :(
Nearly got arrested at the airport trying to smuggle 40+ spray cans through - lots of Dubai muscle men shouting at me as if I was a terrorist! But after 2 hours of delagation proving we were on business and these were my tools - they allowed me to join the team and fly home...phew
It all felt like a bit of a dream it went so fast....Slept most of Saturday and Sunday!
