Things I like about Abu Dhabi: Part one

1. Arabian bread
2. Egyptian feta (seriously, it's the best - as creamy as chevre but tart too)
3. Taking cabs everywhere
4. Tons of stray cats
5. The language, though the only Arabic word I can recognise so far is the one for "tonight" and that's only from watching the promos on TV.
6. Hummus
7. Saying "Abu Dhabi"
8. Getting text messages that tell me whenever I have completed a banking transaction.
9. When people say "what is your good name?"
10. Getting almost any sort of food - from Italian to Subway - delivered in less than 30 minutes.
