Let the record show that I am not a fan of bureaucracy.
But I mean, let’s face it – is anybody? I would like to think not.
My move to the UAE back in May was marred with complications from the start but with the help of my thoughtful colleagues and some great online resources (AKA expat groups on Facebook with thousands of active members) I have been able to manoeuvre my way around things like securing my civil ID, health insurance and having my personal effects shipped to me from Bahrain.
I am however, still without a local license. As you can imagine, this poses quite a challenge to me especially as Abu Dhabi (much like Bahrain) is very much a driving city. Cabs are plentiful but using them on a daily basis has taken both a toll on my wallet and propensity for motion sickness. In any case, I’ve resolved to do less complaining, and focus on making the most of my weekly trips to the driving school in Dubai in the form of vegan-venturing.
