Hii from the UAE by DesertDiva on 13 August 2012 11:22am
 
My name's Marina, I'm a Scot from Aberdeenshire living in Al Ain, UAE since 2009.

This is a great community of like minded individuals and I know I will enjoy my time here.

I love the UAE and Oman and having been inspired by the great man's journeys, I try to experience the real culture and spirit of these countries. I've not long started blogging, you can read about my adventures here - "Living life to the full in the empty quarter" - www.mbfullemptyquarter.blogspot.com.
Regards, Marina, Camel Whisperer, Adventurer and Offroad Fanatic

Welcome Marina, from the Desert Southwestern United States and my Sonoran Desert home. I suspect I am our token Jewish person here...:)

We travel around Aberdeenshire occasionally. I believe it can get quite hot out there. Do you have air conditioning?

Perhaps I should say hello and continue the above discussion in Blathering On or Travel!?

Air conditioning in Aberdeen, Ken ? Aye, they open the windows and get blown off their feet. ;)

Thanks all for your welcomes!
@Loretto - will share my blog posts when I have something interesting to offer!
@Ken Dunn - We definitely need A/C out here - it gets up to 45-50C!
@Tucsonmike - must find out more about your desert!

Currently in Liwa (23 degrees North, on the edge of the empty quarter)where it has been heavy rain this afternoon, which bodes well for some tricky offroading tomorrow! Will blog once I get back home!
