As I sit here at Dubai International Airport, it seems like as good a time as any to reflect on this fabulous trip we have now nearly completed. After all, its 10.15 (on a Wednesday night - but that's close enough) and there will be no plane boarding till 2.15am. What else is a girl to do with 50 minutes of free WiFi and two more hours of waiting time?
So how does it look on paper - this trip of ours.
... heard this, I had to do a little research. There are 4000 villas and apartments on the island. The web site Luxhabitat.ae has homes on the beach listed for $20 000 000. (converted to Cdn). There are two more palm islands currently under construction.

The transfer flight from DC to Newark was stressful in that there was only 1.5 hours between landing and my new take off---that included de-planing from the middle of the plane, going through passport control, then customs, then baggage claim, then re-checking my bag, then being fully body checked through the check-point, then taking a tram to a new terminal because of a gate change, then walking the tarmac to a puddle ...
... ETC. Persia (Iran), is just a stones throw away across the Strait of Hormuz which is very close to here.
Just scouting out the UAE for a future country to work in. They pay teachers quite well here,
and the quality of life seems to be excellent. The great food, the excellent infrastructure, the multicultural society, the beautiful music, are all compelling reasons to move here. And moving here is likely to happen in the near future.
