Just some backgroudn to those who are interested about me... Am German, environmental engineer, 36, single, and did live already some time abroad. Only last April, I returned to Germany after 3 years working in a development aid project on Negros Island, Philippines... Before, I was working a fews years in Germany, but was sent by my employer for about one year to Singapore...

While I was looking for jobs both in Germany and abroad the last few months, I received a very interesting offer from Dubai...

However, do feel that Dubai will be a different, new experience.... Am quite excited and curious and waiting for the legalisation of my university diploma by the UAE embassy in Berlin so my visa can be processed...

Will post some new threads in other sections within the next days... In case you have some questions about me, just let me know...

Greetings from Germany

Welcome to the bored Mo, even if you are from Germany. Good luck in Dubai.

Hi MonsoonHunter,
I was wondering what field of environmental engineering you are in? I am an environmental consultant here in Dubai and I often network with environmental engineers.

Welcome to The Bored.

Ich hoffe, Sie genie├čen Dubai
