I've moved back to Dubai for a project - here I am.
Had a hotel for a month (was happy not to move every week or 2 ...) but alas there was mould... so I chaned it to a 1 night stay.. and in turn found an apartment I may keep for 1 month (to 6 months.... nooo. you say.. yay, I say. stability. Will go on a tour of it tomorrow, will sign papers tomorrow if all works out. )
IN THE MEANTIME: I discovered a cool little jazz bar with a wicked view.
