The dark side

I begin to wonder if I am obliged to face facts and accept that I am an ex-Sandlander. Stories like this convince me serious shit can befall even those in the supposedly enlightened UAE media sector, supposedly protected by the special status of the media free zone.

In all my time in the Sandlands, I never felt safe (from the 'government').

I never did my deposit back from TECOM. They almost posted me as an absconder, because I didn't cancel my residence visa. I didn't think I needed to because it expired six monthas after we left (plus, it is supposed to be automatically cancelled if you are outside the country for six months).

Mad, mad, mad. I don't think I'll ever go back there.
