The energy and excitement of last week’s Cityscape in Dubai featured frenzied crowds scrambling to climb the property ladder, looking for the latest deal with a golden payday.While covering the event, staff photographer Sarah Dea captured this wonderful moment when four participants, no doubt completely exhausted from the frenetic atmosphere, collapsed onto a leather bound sofa and chairs in a quiet corner, recharging before another round.
