Spring is here?

Let me know when it’s winter time!

Well, it’s challenging to sense spring when you’re living in the desert. Seasons seem just the same, apart from summer, of course. Yes, in the desert, summer is nothing less than a furnace.

You live in constant isolation with your A/C always on, leaving only to go to some malls. In the cars, in the mall, of course, the temperature is freezing. In the beginning, when I first started my adventure here, I was afraid of that. I thought I might take something serious, some bad pneumonia.

Nah, what happened was the definitive human being answer to almost everything: I simply coped with that.


In March, I can count exactly 5 years of life in the desert, but as you can imagine, nothing was really bothering me before 2020. See, living in Dubai, closed inside your apartment, isn’t the best experience.

And Dubai it’s expensive, mind that. Whenever you call for food, you must think twice. Yes, some people say it’s ok. You just need to understand where to eat. I don’t agree, at least not entirely. See, to spend less in Dubai means to have low-quality food.

Yes, it’s cheap, but to what cost?

Anyways, that’s spring in Dubai, 32 degrees Celsius and a gloomy sky most of the time. But do you know what it will be helpful, then? Winter! Yes, winter here it’s like spring in the rest of the world I’ve visited. Everyone likes to leave, to go around, cycling, swimming and such. Yes, I must save my graphics for few months and let the chick say: “Is it winter?”
