Now let me preface this by saying, I’m sorry. I know that several of you have attempted to contact me this week and I am sorry for not really getting back to any of you. I promise that I will. Momentarily you will understand how busy this week has been. But I have loved hearing from you all and getting your questions (many of which I hope to address !)
I don’t want anyone to think that I have forgotten about my blog as I have not updated it in almost a week. Never you fear; I have not. I have been taking little notes all week about things I want to tell you all. And no worries, I will post 3 times today to make up for the time that I missed 🙂
To start at the beginning of the week: I started work on Sunday at the Al Raha Beach Development that is an ALDAR project. The project will be going on for about 10 years and is 11 kilometers long. It is dubbed as the “Ultimate Waterfront City”. It is really cool and these pictures do not do it justice in anyway, so I highly recommend going to the websites and looking as the video models.
The center of the development is called Al Dana and it is the iconic point of the development.
I work on site at the far end of the development near what is called Al Zeina (Zane-a) in the Main Site Office. As I have never been on a construction site before, I really have no grounds for comparsion on the site. However, several of the people that I work with say that it is by far one of the nicest job sites ever.
This was a big week at work for us because we went “live” meaning that we brought a lot of the projects within the development on system. So we were working 12-14 hour days (at work, not including when I was up at 4:40 am to talk to people in the US), hence why I was a bit of a bad friend this week in not calling/talking/emailing/im-ing you.
Fortunately, we were able to celebrate last night with some toasting and champagne with the team.
So that’s a quick recap on work this week…
