Departing Dubai

It’s hard to believe we’re down to just a little over 3 weeks left in Dubai.  We were at a dinner last night with some friends and met an expat from outside the Consulate.  He was describing the difficulty of answering the question “do you like Dubai.”  You feel silly, or even ungrateful, complaining about a place that offers every creature comfort under the sun.  At the same time, everyone agreed, it is rare to find a person who is sad to leave.  So you pause, for a long time, before saying “sure, I guess, what’s not to like?”  No one is convinced, least of all you.  This has been a good place for our family to hunker down and make it through the sleep deprived, travel resistant years.  We feel no regret, though, in leaving here in 26 days!
