In 1971, Dubai began evolving into the city and Emirate we know today . Over the last four decades, people from all over the world have come here to assist with the process of nation building. Nowhere else in the world has seen development at this pace. This blog aims not only to document the life of a British family living and working here, but also to look at how the Dubai vision took shape.
If you have stories, memories or photos of your time in Dubai during the last 40 years, please share them on this site so people can begin to understand a little more about the building of this modern city state.
