  • Dubai? How many Arabians are traveling to Uganda and East Africa? Why is Uganda Tourism wasting money in Dubai instead of Europe?

    The Europeans are traveling now that COVID is behind us.

    So why Dubai?! I know why. Lilly and her friends at UTB get free trips to Dubai. Shopping and fun.

    Very bad and very sad.
