Loneliness...



Loneliness is probably one of the largest issues that plagues the expatriate work force here in Dubai. I spotted this worker sitting alone at the beach in Jumeirah. He lives in Dubai while the rest of his family has remained back. On this particular day, his other mates were away at work while he enjoyed his weekly day off. Enjoyed? He spent most of the day sitting alone in this spot with loneliness for company.

I know this spot
It's my lonely spot too
This spot actually has a story behind it *sighs*

thanks guys.

Yes... I did speak to him. Was interesting to peek into his life. He spends most of his weekly off sitting at the beach besides an occassional visit to Safa park.
