Hello from the sandpit

HELLO

We have been living in the sandpit (= Dubai) since late 2006 and will be moving back to Switzerland this summer. (And I must admit that I'm absolutely delighted about it. )

Just wanted to introduce myself in order to be allowed to reply to the massage thread - may I now?

BYE. (.... and I'm off to the massage thread)

PS: Oh, yes ... and "starfish" because ...

.... they do not have a centralized brain (that would be me - only since pregnancy, though)
... and because the beach is just down the street

Welcome to the EF and, soon, Switzerland!

Isn't the street in Dubai only distinguishable from the beach due to the houses on both sides?

Re: Hello from the sandpit

Thanks a lot.

@ grynch: You are right, I'll probably will have to change it to "choc star" upon arrival.

@ aragyl: There are several spots between Umm Suq and Jumeirah 1 where you can see straight down to the beach (from the Beach Rd). There are also many houses in the small streets between the Beach Rd. and the beach, from where the view is quite nice...
