Thank you!

   Yesterday my blog had 364 views! What!? I have never had that many views since I started. I just wanted to say thank you for reading. When I first started this adventure I could barely find a blog on teaching in the UAE, not to mention a female blog by a BLACK female that is updated on a daily basis (I have found one). This is the reason behind Black Girl In Abu Dhabi. Who knew that I would have touched so many people as well as made a few friends on the way. I am always surprised (I shouldn't be it IS the internet) when I am stopped about my blog on the streets of Abu Dhabi or have a friend tell me their friend reads my blog and they did not know of its existence. Funny this is most teachers who are here don't know I have a blog, I don't really advertise.
      Once again thank you for reading, thank you for commenting and thank you for your interest. To the prospective ADEC teachers I was once in your shoes, keep the faith your ticket will come! 

     Nevertheless, I  curious as to the sudden readership increase  in the last few days. How did you find my blog? I am just curious to know, feel free to comment below.

  6. My boyfriend has a possible job opportunity coming up there. I was thinking of coming too. I have a bachelors and a masters degree in social work. I have been doing lots of work in the counseling field. I would be interested in any information you know of about possible job leads for me. It will be just the two of us (our kids are adults). I found your page by just googling "black girls in Dubai". I wanted a glimpse of what life would be like there. Love your page!

  7. Hi Miss Lady,
    Unfortunately, I do not know of any work in your field. I think you should come with your boyfriend and you can always look for work once you get here. I think it would be a great experience.
