Thanks! I'm pretty ok. Living in Tanzania now. Decided Geneva was just too dull... Got 3 working limbs and a shitty old car. Whohoo. Hope you're good, and glad to see the UAE flag is still flying....

HSBC don't even want to retain me with a basic account, any more, now they've finally noticed I'm non-resident (it's only taken them three years since I told them...). I...

Yeah... it's very weird to go from long-term planning of future with wife (buying house, etc.) to single and living day to day. Can't really even choose a place to live until...

Re: Heading back...

Probably going to be in Abu Dhabi a week per month until next summer.

Will be trying to make sure there are weekends in Dubai (and Beirut) during that time.

Re: Westlands Nairobi, terrorist shooting

Sadly one arm is definitely a poor second to the other... it's going to require some more poking around, but I'm waiting for the surgeon to decide what/when that'll be.

Not that I have a lot of...

I'll almost certainly be in Bur Dubai - not my night out night, but could maybe make a crafty pint work.

Thanks all.
