In the United Arab Emirates, a town on the coast known for its amazing and outlandish architecture. This was not what Dubai was to me though. We were sent to Dubai while I lived in Kuwait for the fear of invasion from Iraq. This was a more than a 3rd grader could take in. Even worse, my father could not join us in evacuating because he had to stay and work. Not even a year after we moved to the Middle East we were faced with this adversity. Luckily Dubai was as beautiful and amazing as you see on television and the internet. The buildings, the ocean and mass amount of stores was overwhelming (which was great to take our mind off real life). About a week later we were allowed TO RETURN home, nothing had happened and everyone was safe but it was a very scary and real week. This was truly the moment I realized were not in Texas anymore
