Winter had finally landed in the UAE. This morning it was a rather cool 15 degrees as I drove to work. The office was downright frozen because people insist on keeping the damn air conditioning on. Right now, I am sitting in my living room with the balcony window open, and there is a small breeze coming in that's making me feel kind of chilly.

Granted, it's not the bone-chilling minus 20 degrees celsius temperatures we used to get in Montreal, but by UAE standards, this is cold. It's weird when I think that this is what we consider summertime weather in other countries. I wish it could stay this way year-round.
