Abu Dhabi – Orientation

December 12th, 2008 Posted in Abu Dhabi, Geekiness, General

I figured it would be nice to provide you all with some geographic orientation. Perhaps this will help all of you wrap your head around just where in the world we are…

For your viewing pleasure, a link to a Google Earth file for download and viewing.

  • Asfar Hotel/Apartments – this is the extended-stay style apartment that we currently live in. It is furnished and has a kitchen. It really is pretty nice, though way to pricey for us to stick around longer than the time provided by the company.
  • Millennium Building – this is the home office in Abu Dhabi for RW Armstrong. This is where I’m currently working. It’s on the 14th floor and the three, small elevators are packed every morning. Personal space is an foreign idea over here.
  • Evangelical Community Church – this is the church we are attending in Abu Dhabi. They have quickly made us a part of the body. Expatriates are tight-knit and quick to form relationships out here. It was been reassuring to say the least. Amazing how many people share our idea of not just being here to work.
  • Al Bateen Airport – it seems that most of my early work here is going to be more airport work. This airport in particular is implementing several projects in an effort to modernize and cater to VIP and VVIP air traffic. It seems very likely I’ll end up in a site office out at the airport.
  • Fireworks – here’s the building we stood on to view the fireworks show. This was our first full day in Abu Dhabi and was a warm welcome.
  • Beach Location – this is on Lulu Island. A 10-minute ferry ride from the Marina Mall and you have your own private island. Granted, many others are there enjoying the beach as well. We had our own hut and several chairs. We probably had a good 300 feet of beach all to our own group.
  • Mosque Flat – this is the first flat we looked at. This is a villa converted into numerous flats. The kitchen was small and had no hot water. In addition, it sits right next to a mosque. We were able to hear the call-to-prayer while in the apartment and could barely speak over it. I’m not sure living next to that and hearing it 5 times a day is such a good idea. Though I had thought it might be good to have the reminder to pray.
  • Airport Flat – this is the second flat we looked at and the one we’ve put a security deposit on. We’ll see how this pans out. Need to get residency, lease terms, and payment issues worked out. Looks to be about $40K US per year… for rent.

    Well, you can always count on me for the geeky touch.

    Congrats again on the new boy. We’ll be contacting your sister and brother-in-law soon. We just rented a flat… need to get moved in!

    For some reason I couldn’t open the link! Not surprising, huh?

    Jim,
    Do you have Google Earth installed? You need that installed for the link to work.
