Letoya's First Blog Entry From Abu Dhabi

My last blog entry was last year. I'm so ashamed, again. So this is going to be a big one.

Abu Dhabi has treated me well. So far my new job is absoutely crazy but my coworkers are very welcoming. I'll tell you more about them later. I found a huge magazine stand at a small grocery around the corner. They sell craft and hobby magazines like Craft: I don't know why they sell them. I haven't found a yarn store here anywhere. I think camel wool is used for rug making. There's no such store like Michaels. I found this knitting mag that came with a free gift. It's a UK publication. The patterns are unimpresive, but they advertise some of the best products like Rowan and Habu. The magazine is trying to appeal to lots of different knitters and cross stitchers, instead of specializing. Anyway, the mag as a whole is still worth the price of 3.99 GPB.

Here's what today looks like in my neighborhood of Kkalidya, Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. I took these pictures from my apartment balcony.
