Green obscene

Behind the trees and flowerbeds of the deceptively tranquil Green Community housing development (million dirham concrete blocks in the middle of the desert) lies a seething underworld of infidelity and depravity.

One separated wife and her new partner have even taken to lurking behind palm trees with a long range lens, trying to get a snap of her husband and his mistress, who live a few doors away. This after the spiteful hubby informed on his ex-wife and her lover to police.

"It's so far from anywhere there: you don't want to go anywhere because of the traffic, so there's little else to get up to," one Green Georgina explains sadly. "But I don't know what happened to just playing Scrabble or Monopoly of an evening."

Or Twister?

"Ah, well that's where it all starts," she confides.

Ah, the good old expat hobby rears its head again. Happens a lot in Al Ain, not because of the bad traffic but because theres not else much to do.

Some communities have book-sharing clubs, we have one of those as well

There is only one solution to boredom in the middle east...
That is the honourable internet. Go and fucking get it.

When I first moved here and had no TV, no music and no car, I used to watch the hookers in my Bur Dubai neighborhood walk around the block, and around and around.

Yes, and sadly EatSalad must have found them and blocked access, because then they weren't seen anymore. Their games with the tinted X5s used to greatly enliven my walks to the local Spinneys.

Poor Georgina. Wonder what will happen to the Rachels of the Ranches. Will they resort to eating horse manure to rid themsleves of boredom? I hear the manure on the polo fields there is of very high quality..

What do you expect from suburbia? In the UK, we've seen shenanigans and tomfoolery like that for years from behind twitching net curtains....

Good thing there are no such thing as milkmen or bus drivers in that area, then. Otherwise how on earth would the poor trailing wifies find time to shag their neighbour's husbands?
