Jimmy and I inside the Dubai Opera House taking the great tour that they offer.

Marhaba! WELCOME to my blog about the World’s Fastest City, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (Also known as: the “City of Gold” and the “City of Superlatives”).  I moved to Dubai with my husband Jimmy, an architect. I am a real estate agent and an attorney. I maintain my  ties to Atlanta, our hometown, through my  real estate team there, which with my move has become international.

This blog contains my thoughts and impressions of Dubai, and I thank you for visiting. TO FOLLOW THE BLOG, simply click follow on the lower right hand corner of this page.  You can see all my blog posts by clicking “Archives” to the right of this post.

    • The food is AMAZING!!! And what blows me away is that each restaurant is run by those of that nationality. For instance, at the Syrian restaurant on our street, the maitre ‘d is Syrian, the waitstaff is Syrian, the chef is Syrian! The same for the Mexican, the Jaimacan, the Pakistani, and the Indian restaurants we have been to. It truly is a melting pot! We probably will *not* get another dog here. We will be travelling too much… and it’s so hot here in the summer. I will be certain to post lots of pictures of landscape, architecture and colors!!! Thank you!!
