Unfortunatly, I can no longer harbor dreams of being an international criminal as I had my retinal scan registered with the government as part of a very slick immigration procedure at the airport. I guess it bypasses the need to lift a woman's veils for identification and it was pretty cool.
I was put up at a swank five start hotel http://www.rotana.com/rotanahotelandresorts/unitedarabemirates/alain/alainrotana for six days while I went through orientation at the college. My hotel room was bigger than my last apartment so that was nice. Their gym was great and because of the time difference I was up early and able to work out before going into work everyday.

I haven't had time to take many photos as I've been running around like a crazy person but here are a few of my apartment that I took quickly before coming to work (which is a ten minute drive away).
|This is what the rooms all look like..this one will be the livingroom.|
You can see that there is a lovely jungle view out the window
and they all have that...limes, breadfruit and dates are growing
which brings in singing birds.
|My kitchen...another lovely window view. I've even got |
Starbucks coffee for my new coffee maker
|The bedroom...not much to look at so far but at least I'm off the floor now|
