Really Vanhenrik, you did some great contributions on this forum but you also post a lot of offtopic stuff. I know that there is a lot of interesting things on web which you like to share with us, but try not to post them if they are not related with the thread. No offense mate

While many won't like me saying it, there is a LOT of truth in her statements.

You'll notice that the people denying what she has written will not respond point by point, but will rather just make a general statement that she is wrong and bitter.

Fact is, it is unbelievably hot, prostitutes abound, rules don't apply to all the same way, and slave labour is the norm.

Now there are many positives about Dubai also, but we should be 'eyes open' when talking about it.

In fact other posters have noted that due to the extreme daytime heat, all pouring of concrete takes place at night.

some is true, but its only a few months in the year where its that hot. its usually around 30, 20 centigrade. the reason food is so expensive is beacuse EVERYTHING is imported, but it is cheaper than say london (most things).

There are bad areas everywhere in the world, dubai only has prostitues in bur dubai, and they are illegal (mostly tricked, poor girls, but if they go to the police the people that pay to have sex can be arrested and deported).

TV is new here. we get almost as new episodes as we can about programs, and we get thigs like MTV and most programs, however some programs are old, it is not true that "knight rider is the best thing since sliced bread", i watch lost on showtime and ugly betty.

Dubai does have a lot of waste, but its a young country that still needs to learn. building the man-made islands actually helps the eco system, we got sea grass because of them! and before it was like ... sand. All water is desalinated (besides bottled).

Dubai has its bad, and goods. I love it here, and it can be for anyone. I mean come on, which country doesent have bad things?

Dubai is running out of oil. UAE is not. Abu Dhabi has enough oil to last for 100 more years.

I think it's the 6th time already Vanhenrik I agree that many people on this forum havent seen the clips, they quicky get on the 5th page from behind because of so many posts here. We can`t post every interesting pic or movie on every second page because most people missed it. You could put a link to that movies in you signature. That would do the job

Thank you for shared that. I feel bad for people who live in that lifestyle in Dubai. That needs to change and provide more freedom in Dubai and UAE. This change possibly will not happen unless if some countries like USA or Europe invades UAE and change the government/cultures. I have no desires to move to Dubai... I might want to visit there to see it myself. I can't see myself living in Middle East.
