“Living in France has been hard because of the language, but I love the museums and monuments here and I love to travel.  Besides France, I’ve been to Qatar, Malaysia, the Maldives, Bahrain, Egypt, and Spain.  I would also love to see the U.S.”

*I asked him if he planned to return to Dubai after his studies in France*

“Dubai is my home.  I don’t want to live anywhere else.  I love my family and miss my mom’s cooking.  I am the second oldest of 7 boys – one lives in Germany, and two others are studying in Malaysia… Actually, I got engaged 6 months ago, so really I love Dubai because my love is in Dubai.  Her name in Eman, which means Faith in English.  She is studying French literature at the University of Dubai, so she speaks French very well and will come to live with me when I move to Toulouse next year.  I love her very much.”
