How much!?

One of the things I always try to find when away on a work trip in Europe is a decent bar playing good live music.


I've not had much luck so far in Paris - just the odd Irish pub with someone on guitar - good fun, but nothing very special.


When I got back to my hotel this evening my ears lit up, so to speak - rockin' blues was blaring across from the bar across near reception. Excellent!


I plonked myself down, thinking I could have a quick drink and enjoy the music before an early bed, so as to be bright and breezy for tomorrow's customer meeting.


The waiter handed me a drinks menu, which I glanced at, put down, got back up and then went straight to my room.


26 Euros for a diet Coke, even if the following Coke costs 12 Euros is a little steep...


Dubai prices are suddenly looking a lot more reasonable.

Comments:

It's why I do a reality check most times I come back - especially from UK or Europe. The prices we complain about in Dubai take on a new complexion.
