Default Dubai

Spent the last week in Dubai down in Media City and was amazed at how many G's were in the city... could go for a coffee or drink any time of day and see several. At night there was lots of action with the G's sliding through the intersection at the Media One Hotel... nice to see so many in one place and what a beautiful city. To those of you who live there, i am jealous

Places to see, for sure get to the Burj Kaslifa and the Burj Al arab, a trip over to Palm makes a lot of sense and the food, well its good everywhere... what part of town are you staying in?

Agree fun place to visit not sure i could live there

To visit? Hellz yeah, to live? Not on your life.

All our oil money is supporting that life style over there. And with all the religous strife in the region, to permenantly station one self in harms way? Not quite my cup of tea.

But I'd dip my whick in the proverbial ink, so to speak, for a bit atleast.

Default I disagree

@ravill.
Sorry, but I have to disagree with you on "stationing yourself in harms way"
I read a lot of your posts, and have gained a great deal of knowledge from the advice you give, and things you write, but i have to disagree with this last one ( on dubai)
Have you ever been there? It is a "safety bubble" in the terrorism world, and I feel safer there than here in the US.
No, I wouldn't want to live there for many other reasons..... But terrorism is not one of them.
Look at our own country, killing 20 innocent children in a school in CT, the moron at the theater in Colorado, etc, etc. it seems like EVERY friggin day some crap here happens, even by non terrorists.
I won't get into gun control here on the forum, I have 10 of them, but its the way we deal with known criminals that needs to be addressed, these POS go through every loophole in the legal system and get off. Another thing to think about: There are over 250 million guns in the US. That means over 249 million of them did not create crimes last year

as i am from Qatar and i have been living in U.S for almost 6 years i loved the U.S i had lodes of fun, but livening in the U.S to me personally wouldn’t work with.
first safety i feel way safer in my home country. you won’t believe how safe it is unless you experience it. i have experience both living in the U.S for quite sometimes and home.
financially i think the tax's that most of the U.S citizen pays is way alot. i dont work my ass off and uncle Sam comes and take a fare amount of what i errand.
At the end home is home
If need help in the Q town PM me
