    Thank you both for your kind welcoming words - will keep you informed of progress. Jnette - look Dubai up on the web, it's a fantastic place, the jewel of the Middle East!! It's on the coastline of the United Arab Emirates about 200 miles North of Abu Dhabi, can't wait to get there!!

    hi all,

    i'll definately try and send photos from my experiences in dubai - all depends on what internet facilities etc. will be available to me (i'm sure though that won't be too much of a problem). i'm armed with my digital camera and ready to go!!

    dear 1984,

    i worked over there some years ago and some friends worked in the american
    hospital.
    i went on a holiday there and got back last week, things have changed!!
    i'm sure you'll fit in and enjoy dubai if:

    you like to dress up and eat in exclusive restaurants and it doesn't cost the earth.
    you like to lavish yourself in the best quality gold and diamonds avaliable, that again don't break the bank.
    have a year round sun tan.
    go to balls and cocktail parties wearing handmade silk dresses that yet again don't cost much.
    buy a 4x4 and fill your tank for about 40dhs which is about 7.00!!!
    you work very hard there and long hours and the pay was never fantastic but everything is tax free. also it depends what benefits are thrown in for you.
    the apartments my friends lived in were huge, fully furnished and a stones throw of shops, bars and restaurents in bur-dubai.
    the arabs in dubai, no problem.
    be sensible but remember there is hardly any crime.( who would be stupid enough to do anything there??)
    june, july and august are unbearable, humid hot and horrible.
    try to take any annual leave then.
    your money does go along way.

    taxis are dirt cheap!! and there mercedes!!

    i'm desperate to get back. just waiting for the right job to turn up for my boyfriend.
    please pm me if you want to know more.
    by the way the shopping is out of this world!!!!!!! take me back!!!!

    please keep in touch.

    diane.
