Never Boring, Always Changing!

     It was another beautiful day in the UAE! The newness of everything still hasn't worn off. I am used to living here now, however, there are so many different cultures that you encounter on a daily bases that everyday is seriously a new day! Never boring, always changing.
     I love that it's sunshine 98% of the time! I am "solar powered" as my beautiful mother would say. However, Sunscreen is a close and dear companion of mine. My Ethiopian friend asked me today why do white people, Americans really, like sun so much? I laughed and began to explain that American's like to be tan. Then I explained tanning beds. She agreed that was a dumb idea! Later in the conversation she asked about freckles. I happen to be an expert on this...tanning I am not!
     On another note...Police drive BMW's as their cop car! Yep. Only in Dubai. They don't typically pull people over. There are radar cameras set up along most main roads that snap a picture of speeders and then send a text message to their cell phones telling them to come to the police station they have been given a ticket. I don't think I have gotten any tickets...yet. ( ;
