Terminal travel

The Frenchman flew out of Dubai last night, but only just. After checking in more than two hours ahead of time, he only just made the flight after ridiculous queues at the check-in desk of our favourite airline.

It seems the heat got to many of the passengers: one pregnant woman fainted in the queue, while a UAE national woman slapped an airline employee when he tried to explain to her that she couldn't barge her way to the front of the line.

While we make visitors uber-welcome to this city, it might be wise to try and make the farewell as pleasurable as the 'marhaba'.

I think my favourite story this whole year is those UAE national ladies who heroically took on some pervert who assaulted them in the mall.

Bienvenuto Drama Queen (I hope you aren't close to Ms. Lohan)... I'd agree with secretdubai on the story. It caught my eye, not to mention, my attention as well.

I have written a short Guide to UAE blogs and included yours on it. Please let me know if any details are incorrect. I am trying to limit the list to blogs written specifically about the UAE in some way (rather than those that concentrate on people's personal thoughts/poetry/photos etc).
