Description

Canadian expat Geraint Isitt has lived in the Middle East for 14 years, most of them in Dubai, the modern metropolis in the United Arab Emirates.

We talk of the history of Dubai, and Lea remembers when she first visited in the 1980s, when it was a small desert town.

Safety, expenses, heat, geography, outdoor activities, and lodgings from the opulent seven-star Burj Al Arab, to more inexpensive lodgings -- we discuss them all.

Geraint talks of Dubai's giant malls with skiing and penguins; beaches, the Burg Khalifa, tallest building in the world; the souks of the old quarter;  the desert, Palm Island, and what's new, including a restaurant hanging in the sky.

And he takes us on a day-trip to Abu Dhabi, focusing on the Grand Mosque, before telling us his favorite memory.
