So where are you based? I'm in Bahrain and work in Saudi, what about the rest of you?

What's good and bad about where you live?

that's cos I haven't got any money and the child is driving me nuts, but in general I love Dubai and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Just having a tight month financially which restricts us somewhat.

I'm in Bahrain, like you, and will be out yet again later today looking for demonstrations, protests, etc.............

What do you reckon is a good area to buy in right now?

Hey,

I'm in Muscat, Oman. I love it here, apart from the weather at the moment! The locals are great here, so lovely & welcoming & friendly. The country itself is beautiful and I have a very nice apartment and friends / boyfriend.

What I don't like I guess is the driving, "wasta" and the staring sometimes gets to me a bit.

But it's great! Anyone else in Muscat?
