Hi Heather
I just arrived in Dubai, last Thurs and only know a couple of people too. I live at Jumeirah Beach Residence, about 50 metres from the beach. I don't start work till Mon and will then be commuting to Abu Dhabi, where I will be working in events. Get in touch if you fancy popping to the beach or grabbing a drink somewhere - email
Becky :)
