Re: Woman arrested in Dubai for drinking wine - on Emirates

Re: Brexit outcome

Can we change topics slightly and talk about Jeremy Corbyn?

Re: return flight Dubai to Damascus

Fly to Syria via Lebanon. Go to Beirut and take a hire car/shared taxi over to Damascus.

But you're about 10 years too late.

Re: Accepted Job offer in Qatar, what next ?

1. Unconscious racial bias? No, it's not unconscious. It's fully conscious. Qataris and other Arabs will, for the most part, either ignore you or think lesser of you. However, it's unlikely to affect...

Re: British teacher with kids moving to UAE

I'm tempted to say if you can't afford 60k AED for school fees or have access to places at the better British schools then don't come to the UAE. 60k is on the cheap side for the better schools.......

Smoking banned in Qatar bars

Tell me more. Why the V? How do they smuggle drugs into the country? You'd have to be really, really, really daft to even contemplate getting involved with drugs in the UAE.

Kid is a "British" citizen. Makes you wonder if it's really a rich Pakistani or Lebanese family that copped dat passport if we're talking about connections and being protected.

The alternative is a stupid kid who got over his head and is panicking and in hiding because he can't cough up the money. I can easily see something like this happening.

Re: White hair

Being rude and arrogant and pushy and demanding is what gets you respect in the Middle East. Bonus points if you drive a massive white Land Cruiser or Patrol.

White hair

I think I spotted my first white hair this morning whilst shaving. Something glinted in the stubble :(

But I made it to 38 before having the first white hair. Being blond helps.
