Living in Dubai, we've all had these discussions with Friends back home, trying to understand what our lives are like in the UAE. What I usually get is: 
"Oh I love hot weather, I'll come visit you in July!". No, believe me, I love you to bits but you don't want to come visit me in July. 
"What do you mean you can't walk?". Well unless I want to skip all the fun and die right now, I'd rather risk my life in a cab than walk.
"Can I choose the nail polish for my manicure?". Yes, of course, there is no such thing as Nail polish law, you can do whatever you want.
"What do you mean the taxi might not know how to get there, I have the address, I'll be fine!". Yes, sure, just don't be surprised if the driver asks you if you have your friend's phone number.
"Oh you must spend all your week-ends at the beach!". Or not. I am not really excited about skin cancer and mummification.
"Why would I pack jumpers, it's 40 degrees in Dubai". Indeed. Outside.
... and apparently I am not the only one to get this kind of misunderstandings. Let me introduce you to, a hilarious blog that explains all about our lives here in Dubai. Well done the Author, I think we can all relate to it!
