Abu Dhabi and Dubai, United Arab Emirates
A close friend, one I practically grew up with around the family, lived in Abu Dhabi. While visiting her, I searched for opportunities to work in Dubai, hopefully becoming an expat. While driving to her house from Dubai, I pulled over to the side to make sure I was going the right way. I could feel the dry heat immediately after shutting off the car. The dreadful thought of being stuck out in the hot desert crossed my mind. It was constantly hot, even at night.
