    This a great, lighthearted book, follows Jan Constable, The Girl Wearing Pearls, straight out of the UK and into 1970s Dubai. Every modern expat knows the many challenges of living in a different culture yet Jan had to learn about her new home without the help of google or skype which we rely on so much these days. She has an easy style of storytelling and shares her hilarious experiences in this book.

    An entertaining tale about a time long gone when Dubai was more of a small town and less of a megalopolis.
