You haven't ruffled too many feathers, Fursan, but the paraphrased 'if you don't like it here, go home' statement is a little long in the tooth and a sweeping statement. Indeed, many would probably wish it was a statement that could be politically correct and mentioned in their own home countries, but it is a little blinkered when you consider what would happen if everyone did actually go home (if they have the luxury of keeping their own passport when they are employed here).
FYI my life and lifestyle is similar to my country of origin, contrary to many expats. I met my wife in Dubai when visiting, and we decided to relocate after we married.
Anyway, end of the political counterpoint from my side. Dubai is a truly multicultural city with many positives. Unfortunately due to the nature of my work I do not mix with many Emiratis to be able to 'break in' culturally, something which I would like to do. Olive branch out - are you in the UAE?
