Hello from Abu Dhabi!

Well I thought it was about time I updated my blog! I arrived in Abu Dhabi in February and have been finding my feet in the desert. I don’t know where the time has gone and now it’s starting to dawn on me that I am not on holiday and that this is my home for the foreseeable future! I thought you might like to see the view from my living room window:

A bit of a change from the leafy streets of Gosforth and Jesmond, but believe me, I miss the beautiful English rain – I’m not used to this heat! I’ve been very busy settling in, exploring, making new friends and getting to grips with the crazy driving over here. I live just 45 minutes from Dubai so really I have two new cities to explore! Check out these ones from Abu Dhabi:

Lots of tall buildings over here!

The beautiful Sheik Zayed Mosque

I kept a safe distance from this pair…

And a few from Dubai:

The Burj al Arab, a seven star hotel built to look like a sail

More skyscrapers on Jumeira Beach.

It’s taking quite a while longer than I expected to get anywhere near started on work and my supplies still need to be shipped over (I lived in a hotel at first) but I’ve been making contacts and have started thinking about the way forward for Eve’s Daughter. There are a number of options to explore which is good news, so until I am decided I will be blogging about my new discoveries and creative pursuits. I couldn’t go a whole four months without any creativity in my world, so check back in a few days to see what I’ve been up to…
