Life in the United Arab Emirates
This is an attempt to detail life in the United Arab Emirates, life as experienced by a journalist who spent all of 10 years baking in the desert sun, drying out in the cool whenever possible, and surviving to tell the story. The smooth stuff is available at the country's official site. And no, I ain't linking to it. But then you don't want that, do you?
Read on and get an eyeful of what life is really like in an Arab Gulf country, one known for its oil wealth and one from which the United States gets more oil than it actually realises. If you occasionally think I'm a biased observer, don't hesitate to have a bash at me. But don't let that stop you from having a look at what I have detailed here.
