Real World .....Dubai?

So what do you get when you cross a bunch of teachers with ladies night? Yup....wasted!!! Not that I would know...but you hear rumors. Yes, you heard it here...people in Dubai enjoy the night life. In fact, they take drinking as seriously as camel racing, staying cool, and shopping. I believe there is some sort of code at my new school that requires "old"teachers to take the newbies out on the town and shock the hell out of them. Guess worked. First night in town, Rachel (basically the R.A./mother hen of my apartment complex) decided we needed to experieince a Dubai ladies night. It works much like it does in the states....except you don't pay for a darn thing the whole darn night. Walk in the door and you recieve 4 (yes 4!!) free drinks. This particular bar, Boston Bar, hosts a live band.....not skeered of Bon Jovi and Micheal Jackson and thouroghly encourages individuals to break it down on the bar. Dancing on the bar? Where am I? After witnessing a 50 year old co-worker and kindergarden teacher make her debut on the bar, I decided to throw all my preconcieved notions about the Middle East out the window. P.S. I am happy to report that I DID NOT, i repeat, DID NOT engage in such ludacrcis and immature behavior (maybe next time?). So, off it was to yet another bar to experience yet another ladies night (it is rumored that if you are of the female persausion you NEVER have to pay for drinks in Dubai. You simply hop from one Ladies Night to the next). At the next bar, ladies recieved2 free drinks and free admittance into the club. You do the math. We spent the next few hours mingling among locals and ex-pats alike.....simply soaking it all up. Soaking it all up and maybe, just maybe, bustin' a few moves on the dance floor. The party does not seem to stop here. I don't know what people do for a living but i think it is safe to assume no one works before 11 a.m. Suffice it to say, that I am pleased with my decision to venture to Dubai...I do beleive we are a good match. Now if I could only figure out how to fit work into the schedule....
