In The UAE

Hello Friends,
I am sorry for taking long time to make my new post.
The UAE is a very nice country, we went to many malls and I liked it all, I miss Baghdad and my cats but I have to move on and I hope that I'll return home one day.I am staying in my uncle and aunt Rose's apartment and I'll move with my mom and brother Kais to our new apartment on Tusday I think.Today we're going to my favorite mall Sahara mall we'll watch a movie in a cinema for the first time in my life, I actually saw many things here in Dubai for the first time in my life. Last week I made a written interview for the BBC but in Arabic, I'll let you know when it is released.
Well I've got to go now, Thanks for the beautiful comments

    best of luck in your new home.

    I am very happy you are safe.

    Although it is very sad that you had to leave your Baghdad cats, there will surely be cats in the UAE who will also need your love and care.

    Someday true Americans will take back their country through the ballot box, and then we will force our Government and our troops to give back Iraq to the Iraqi People. I pray that this day is not too far in the future.

    Raghda, I am very sorry that you had to leave your home and cats and friends. You and your family have great courage; and you will have new experiences and find new friends and cats to love in the UAE.

    My grandson is your age, and is also going to see Pirates this week. Let us know what you think of it on your blog!

    Here is a link to a picture of a very brave cat. He lives not too far from me in New Jersey in the US.

    Prayers for your well-being away from home and for all whom you had to leave behind, including your cats (how sad, is someone caring for them?). Glad to see something from you. Lee and her three cats

    Hi Raghda,

    I'm glad that you are now safe in Dubai! I have heard a lot of wonderful things about Dubai from one of my blog friends who lives there. I am sure there are many things for you to explore and enjoy there! :) Congratulations on your interview with the BBC! Hey, I saw the first Pirate movie. It was really good! Have fun at the movie and tell us about it. :)

    Take care.

    Hi Raghda,
    Ever since hearing about you on NPR, I check out your blog now and then, and have even "borrowed" some of your kittie pictures. Sorry you had to move, I'm glad you are safe in the UAE now.

    Grayday and David,
    I enjoyed the movie because I watched it in a cinema but the pirates of the Caribbean 1 was better...
    Yes, my friend is taking care of one of them and my grand mother is taking care of the rest.
    Every body,
    Thanks a lot for your comments

    I'm glad you are safe and your kitties are being taken care of. I agree with you that the first pirates movie was better. Thanks for the update. I've been praying for you and your country.

    Glad to read that you moved from looks so violent and horrible there. Please stay safe and keep blogging for us out here in the United States who care about what happens to the real people of Baghdad, and didn't agree with the invasion.
