Re: Problem with Dollar Rent a Car UAE

Re: How far will this get me in Abu Dhabi?

I agree on the food bill but disagree on the housing. 4 bed houses in my compound are going for 155 and we're bang in the middle of the island. 10 minutes from anywhere, pretty much.

Re: The EU after Brexit

This must win the prize for the most opaque thread of the year. It's full of people clarifying what they're not saying, without explaining exactly what point they are making.

Re: Compound advice for Abu Dhabi

We live in a place that, apart from being old and having no real garden (but does have a massive roof terrace), fits all your other criteria perfectly. On a good day it's 5 minutes to BSAK.

Re: Customs Question
