Thanks for finding 'View from Dubai' - my window to the world here in the Middle East.

I have been living in this region for three years and have learned many new things about the people, the religion and the way of life.

So many stereotypes have been shattered and I have built life-long friendships along the way.

I will be using this portal to share my thoughts on the political situation and outlook for the region, as well as sharing some amusing stories as Western and Middle-Eastern collide.

Please share your comments; especially if you whole-heartedly disagree with the content! I would love to hear your thoughts.
