CNN – Connect the World

On the very last day of my last trip to Dubai in January 2018 I was interviewed by CNN. Back then I was still using my old working title ‘Bread and Circuses’, which would later become ‘Garden of Delight’. Doing the interview I was still recovering from a severe fever attack, that kept me in a Dubai hospital for 3 days. I guess that was the ultimate sign to finish the project. Bye bye Dubai.
