Film: The Assignment

Michelle Rodriguez plays a bearded male hitman with an unnecessary big dick who is kidnapped by a Shakespeare-quoting surgeon, played by Sigourney Weaver, and turned into a woman. After shouting "nooooo" at realising the dick has gone and she now has breasts, the Hitwoman seeks her revenge. I watch too many shit movies. This is another but this could end up being a cult film like Showgirls it's so bad.

Park: Bollywood Park Dubai

A short walk from Legoland and we were at the entrance to the second of the parks, and a unique one at that.

Our first, which we were arriving at having just landed after an overnight flight, was the Middle East's contribution to the Legoland family. This is one of three parks that make up the new Dubai Parks and Resorts complex. 

There's a shaded Main Street type area full of shops should you wish to buy overpriced bricks, but do that on the way out!
In the centre of the park is the Mini Village which was my favourite part of the park. 




It includes a centrepiece of some of the most famous landmarks in Dubai, mostly skyscrapers. Perhaps not a surprise, and like it's counterpart, the Burj Khalifa is impressive and way larger than anything else around. It's also difficult to fit into it all into a photograph without being far from it. Good practice for photographing the…
