A brief explanation for those of you reading this blog - the original purpose of this blog was for us to keep in touch with our family and friends back in the U.S.A. who are unlikely to ever set foot in the U.A.E. That is why there are so many pictures and why we explain things in detail as if we are talking to people who don’t experience these things on a daily basis. However, we have gained readers who are currently living in the U.A.E. and may have even been born here. Even though the country isn't new to you, we hope you will enjoy seeing it through our eyes.
We spent our first three years "in country" in Dubai. We have now moved to Fujairah and are experiencing a slightly different culture and environment.
You will find that there is a definite positive tone to our blog because we really DO love it here. We came here by choice and have not regretted it for a minute. If you don’t like living here because it isn't just like back home, you won’t like our blog either.
