Last year, when I was preparing to move to the UAE, I came across a blog that I found very helpful. Martin Fullard is the author of the blog, he has some great insights into the culture of the UAE and I’ve learned a lot from his posts.
Last May he posted about the tell-tale sign that summer has arrived in the UAE. (Please) Read his post: 42. Birds.
As the heat has turned up (it has been over 100 degrees every day for weeks now), I’ve noticed that change in the birds that he addresses. In fact, last Tuesday a bird flew straight into my windshield! It was frightening, but not surprising, I’ve been ducking from birds flying at my car for weeks now. Not sure why I duck, I am in the car and they are outside, I just can’t help myself!
