Back to Al Ain! Woo-hoo!

70 minute commute both ways, every day... Stop at the halfway house on the way home before falling asleep at the wheel! Dodge the locals in the circle of death at the edge of town! Smell the stink of the camel market when driving to Pizza Hut!

I love the UAE. :lmao:

If I'm not mistaken, these new AMMROC guys will be able to choose their own housing. I think these new jobs will be at Al Dhafra. I know there's some AMMROC guys in Al Ain, but these new dudes will be AD/Dubai.
Correct me if I'm mistaken!!!

Oh, yeah... the fog. (sigh)

FIRST day there, we tried to get downtown from the Mafraq, only to be stopped by a sixty, yes you read right, *60* car pileup down the road. Called Fat Bast- er, the HR guy, and he said don't bother coming in. Um, okay...

Back to the pool and drinking! Woo-hoo!

I was just hired by AMMROC, I don't start til late Aug. though because I'm going home to the US for the summer. I hope the new guys you're talking about got a better housing allowance than I did or they are coming without families. My husband works here in AD so our houseing is already taken care of, if not, the allowance would not have been nearly enough. I'll be working QA and they do not know where I will be working just yet, at start I will be traveling to Dubai and Al Ain from AD....YUCK!

I might be able to help with some questions about the local area if anyone has some.

I was told early july, but not sure if I will meet that time frame, 575 for a pp/notery is kind of hard for me to come up with at the moment

Looking at the posts for people coming here soon looking for housing. Oldmopwater is right that dubizzle.com is a great place to look. Also keep in mind all prices are "semi" negotiable here. I would advise, however, for most americans to avoid Mohammed Bin Zayed City for living (also still refered to as Mussaffah). Not many locals there, mostly Indians and Pakistanis who usually avoid you aside from dirty looks unless you are female or have your wife with you. Then they try to harrass. The advantage to being close to work is now negated due to construction and rapid growth: after almost 2 years living there I could make it home in 15 minutes and spend another 45 looking for a place to park. Almost made me miss the drive to Al Ain. Khalifa City A is relatively inexpensive and an easy drive to Abu Dhabi or Al Dhafra. But if you like shopping and nightlife, and don't mind the traffic, then Abu Dhabi is still your best option. Many apartments open all the time, and the price will really depend on your requirements.
