Ghost Protocol Set Location Visited

Remembering Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol Movie
Two men were chasing, first on foot and then on cars. Then suddenly, sandstorm came and hit the city. The chase became even more intense until their cars made a head to head collision. The other man stood up, walked as if nothing happened.

For those who have watched the super intense action hit movie Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, which stars Tom Cruise, that was one of the scenes. As a Dubai resident for almost 5 years now, I thought that time when we were watching the movie on a big screen that the location was just a computer generated one. Which was for me, a never-before-seen bridge wonderfully designed with curved bar railings. But I found myself wrong when we were actually standing on the very place yesterday on an unexpected event.

Why We Got There
The bridge was actually in front of the world famous Meydan Racecourse in Dubai. It is actually the access for VIPs that will come to the racecourse on any major events.

Meydan is just one of the multi million dollar projects of Dubai, UAE that surely helped improve its status as one of the best tourist destinations.

So why did we get there? It was a long story that is not worth telling for. LOL!

Did you know: that the Dubai World Cup is the world's richest race day with over US$26.25 million in prize money? Source: wikipedia.org
