Dubai is so incredible and I have had an amazing time here but there are certain things that really make me miss and appreciate the good ol' U-S of A. I never thought I would actually say this but, i miss LA drivers. Out of any country i've been to, the drivers here are by far the worst, hence the number of "Beware of other's faults" signs posted sporadically along the highways. It's nuts. I had an idea of what I would be getting into living in a predominantly Muslim country, it is different and I respect their culture but it really makes me appreciate the small freedoms our country has to offer. For example; holding your boyfriend's hand in public, wearing shorts without thinking about it or feeling out of place, etc. I usually set my traveling sights outside of the US but I have really been craving a road trip through the 50 states... maybe I'd even settle for 10. Megan, you really need to start looking into your Winnebago purchase. Get back to me.
