UAE National Day
Today the UAE celebrates 40 years of the union of 7 emirates into The United Arab Emirates. It is a hugely significant day for the Nationals and long term residents of the UAE. The progress made in 40 years is astounding - funded by the discovery of oil in the late '60s/ early '70s.
Much has changed, but many things have been cautiously maintain - and rightly so. They are passionately proud of their heritage and history.
I hope they follow their plan and spend money wisely to support the population well for the days when oil is no more, which inevitably will come.
Here's to the next 40 years!
