Bozos in Barcelona

We arrived in Barcelona a few days ago, and decided to spend our first full day on the beach. Normally in the UAE we hide from the sun as much as possible, so we forgot about the benefits of sunblock. If you see three lobsters wandering around Barcelona, wincing at every step, that´ll be us. Eejits.

It´s somewhat depressing reading some of the other UAE blogs now. From a European perspective where art, culture and life ooze out of every pore of every street, the news that Secret Dubai Diary has been blocked by the small-minded mandarins of Etisalat makes no sense whatsoever. How does this enhance the global reputation of the UAE? Not positively, that´s for sure.

You're not wrong KB. Blocking Secret D was a travesty and highlights so much of what is wrong here. Fortunately it has backfired and she's back due to the extraordinary uproar it caused.

This is thing they need to grasp, if you allow people to talk, more people will ignore it, if you try and block it more people will want to hear it.

Of course, we know this because we remember Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Relax.
