This weekend, the UAE celebrated being 39 years old. And when this country throws a party..they know how to throw a party.
The celebration began at school. One of the students' moms gave me and the other western teachers a dress to wear this day.
Then, the next day the party continued at the beach. Where crazy young men spray silly string and shaving cream on unsuspecting people..like my friend, Bonnie, who got blasted.
