Jewel, I came here a month ago after having lived in Spain for almsot 5 years - the temps in the summer could reach up 45c and being as I lived 3kms from the Med, it was very humid.

Just take a few days to acclimatise, drink plenty of water (I drink it from the tap with no ill effects) and wear light, loose, cotton clothing.

HTH

I fly out tomorrow night & arrive friday morning, have butterflies the size of elephants & am looking forward to my new adventure.

I would love to join you Pasanada & BB if you are going to get together sometime.

Dubai here I come!!!

PS I don't suppose anyone has a decent room to let in Bur Dubai?

If you own a sponsor visa and a way back ticket will really be no problem!

I think this is the critical factor above - don't trust men unless you know them very well indeed. So for example, don't accept a lift home from someone you just met in a nightclub, no matter how nice he seems. Don't allow yourself to end up alone somewhere with a man you don't know very well. Don't walk the streets alone after dark. Stay in the women-only carriages on the metro.
