Life in Dubai

It is 6.15am and I am sitting in my office. The last week or so has been a real shocker for me. My days of leaving the apartment at 7 am and getting a taxi within 5 mins are over, probably until next year when summer comes and the school vacation starts.
The last week or so has seen me taking almost 2 hours to get to the office which is only about 5 or 6 km away. With the amount of people waiting for taxis at 7 am, it was impossible to get one. And it was a 15 minute walk to the bus stop. A 1 hour wait for the bus, a mad scramble to get on the bus and a short 15 minute bus ride to the office. If this place was more pedestrian friendly I think I could have WALKED to work.
So therefore from this morning on, its waking up at 5am just so I can leave at 6am and get a cab to work. I guess I better try to turn in early. A 2 hour commute to work can be a real b*tch.
