Now that Building has some understanding of Dubai (4 June, pages 38-42), might I suggest you publish a follow-up article called "All Work and No Play" on the British staff and managers who underpin many of the key subcontractors on construction projects in Dubai. These are people who have been around a long time, health and stress permitting, who will give you a more informed perspective and possibly blur your rose-tinted vision of dusty Dubai.
