Do people in Dubai spell things differently to the UK?

The thing is, the OP knows nothing, so he is asking for information about Queations, I'm sorry but I've looked at Google, and all it seems to do is to suspect that it has been wrongly spelled.

Is Dubai a country or a city, and where is it?

I have seen some corkers asked over the years. A favourite has to be "do they have schools there?".

My mum and dad's friends ask them this EVERY time they come over.
They keep telling them there are more boozers here than in Sheff.

Maybe the question should be 'can you afford to drink there'

Even in prime central London I'm paying 5quid for a beer and 10 for a cocktail at the moment. Can't even get a bottle peer for that in most places.
