Default First we take Manhattan ...

Hello again, everyone

I joined this site a week ago so I thought I'd try to produce my first 'post', or 'thread' or whatever the right word is. It seems that my travelling arrangements between Basra and the outside world do in fact allow for the occasional stop-over in Dubai after all. So here goes. I know this sounds rather cheeky, but as a guy travelling alone, I'd love to know where I could find a nice friendly cafe or bar where fellow expats like to meet up. I'd really appreciate any help or advice the Sand Pit crew could give me. I'm actually travelling today so I know it's too late for my outbound trip, but I'll be back in Dubai round about 16th September and I'd love to be able to find a place where I can meet people and have a laugh or two.
Fingers crossed. Paul (a.k.a. 'desertboy')

p.s. ... then we take Berlin! (answers on a postcard - might be a prize!)]

Thanks ... my first direct contact in a thread! Much appreciated, honestly. I think I need to go for a lie down now. I'll use Google Maps to see if it's anywhere near the Versailles Hotel which my company is using for guys overnighting in Dubai now. I can almost taste my first cold beer in sex weeks!

If you're interested in sex weeks then I suggest Jockeys Bar in the Panorama Hotel, just opposite...

Voordam! Typo error ... obviously. Love that name, Jockeys ... a drink and a ride. Hope I'm not offending anyone, but I guess we're all grown-up people.
