Default 3 weeks to go

Hi all,

I'm going to be moving to Dubai in 3 weeks time from the slightly waterlogged UK.

Never been, no idea where i will be living, how I will get around or pretty much anything other than I start work on the 28th Sept and nearly everything is provided for. Hopefully find out more before I land.

Would I see out my first week in Dubai if I cycling to work everyday? Would I succumb to the sun, the traffic or the authorities first?

Matt

But cycling? I wouldn't bother unpack, makes it easier on next of kin to ship your stuff back...
