Five years in the desert and I知 still here ( I first arrived in 2000). The landscape has changed dramatically over that period and continues to grow around me. Motivated by my friend John, I decided it was time to record my experiences so that you can see what I知 up to and can send me your thoughts. How long I値l be here is unknown as change is the only constant in Dubai. It's one day at a time and so to write and reflect is surely a good idea.
