Dubai #2: Workload Begins

Was welcomed with cold winter winds… brrr! Colder than genting, being 22 deg in the morning and 14 deg at night, it’s no wonder my nose is feeling runny.

First day at work was alright, met new pol, shook many hello hands, knew more about local culture. Accomodation is pleasant despite minimal furnishings… So long a dryer and washing machine is provided plus located near to the city, I’m happy!

I was somewhat prepared to work back late… Was given pile of drawings at 4pm and was told it was to due yesterday… Nice!
Work aside.
The whole time I just can’t get my eyes off those creative skyscrapers, my first to drool at reknown architect’s live work is so dreamland! My first to see so much construction at one glance, many had at least 8 large cranes per site! A city filled with very ambitious large scale construction indeed.

Sleepy now, bedtime. Will write more sometime.

    Welcome to the UAE, hope you enjoy your time in Dubai. It’s a strange time to come, with so many people leaving, due to the ‘financial crisis’. I wish you all the best.
