Happy Thanksgiving

Both my roommates are away- one to his parents' for thanksgiving and the other one in Canada. So I am by myself for the thanksgiving weekend. After I missed the thanksgiving dinner at school on Tuesday I had given up any hope of eating turkey. But bless my landlord's girlfriend. She brought me a thanksgiving dinner and apple-pie too. Now I can let go of my burnt egg bhurji and eat a better meal.

Thanks M.

and happy thanksgiving!

Underbelly of Dubai's Spectacular(?) Rise

Came across this strong piece on the condition of the construction workers in Dubai. The situation is similar in other GCC countries. The growth of economies in the sub continent will make it less and less attractive for people to go to Dubai. I hope the Arab Imperialists will have a hard time "buying slave labor".
