A decade of Dubtown

Yesterday was the anniversary of my arriving on the BA flight from Heathrow, landing at 2230, being astonished by the heat (isn’t it supposed to be cold at night in the desert?) and starting off my time in Dubai.

Ten years later, I’m still here. Although, ironically, I’m posting this from Lagos, where I never imagined I’d spend time or visit.

Coming here has offered me a lot of advantages in life. I have to think about the disadvantages too – I have no intention of leaving, but we’ll need to balance money, career, life, family – and work out if we’ll still be here for the next decade.

I should post a few photos to illustrate the last ten years.
