Hey everyone,

So I've moved! Here are pictures of my apartment. I have a huge one with oodles of space. Did I already mention I had room for visitors? I am more than happy to put anyone up (I am referring to my friends who receive notices about my blog). As you can see from my pictures, a bunch of us from work went to Sharjah which is a Emirate past Dubai. The wife of one of the teachers knows a lot of the shop owners and can get us really good deals. For instance, if anyone wants a necklace with their name in Arabic-for silver it is 250 dirhams and for gold it is about 600 dirhams so just divide that amount by 3.3 and you get canadian prices. I think the pictures posted show a lot of what the souq has to offer.
My t.a. is Canadian and actually lived in Burlington before moving out here...isn't this a small world? Her name is Marian Alphonso and she is great. Her and her family live in the Shangrai- La and she invited us to her place. It is an absolutely beautiful hotel that anyone can visit. You can take

It is ready for parties as it has a counter ready to be set up as a bar! I have the biggest of all the styles of apartments.
a gondola ride and walk through a souq. There are also many restaurants. We ate at one called the noodle house which is Thai (my favourite).

One thing about living here is you meet so many different people. I think that is what i like the best about my experiences here.
If anyone wants anything, put in your orders soon.
Bye for now,

I actually have a t.v. since this picture was taken.

This is one of the bathrooms in my apartment.

Here is the second bathroom which comes off of my bedroom.

We have decided that my entrance is officially the exercise room. All we have to do is buy our equipment.

Most souqs now a days are inside air conditioned buildings and are more like malls.

Here are some of the type of jewellery I like - traditional type stuff.

Here is one of the stores that a friend of ours brought us absolutely filled with pashmina's, duvet covers, table cloths ranging in prices but for example I can get a beautiful duvet cover with pillow cases for 140 dirhams which is about 43.00 dollars canadian.

Some of the things in the shop.

here is a pile of pashminas that I was wading through - I can take orders if you see anything you like.

There are sooo many jewellery stores here that you can really find a bargain. Don't bother ever shopping for jewellery in the malls.
