The heat I can take, in fact I'm only happy in hot sunny weather. Humidity I hate but in fact that hasn't been bad at all recently, quite comfortable really.
But the dust. I can't think of anything worse and it's been like it for the past couple of weeks.
In New Dubai we have more than just the sand, we have cement dust from the construction. It gets everywhere, inside the car inside the apartment, onto and into everything.
Including us.
A few years down the track I suspect that there'll be an epidemic of bad health caused by it among all of us who've lived here during the construction boom.
