10 Lessons Living in the City Has Taught Me

I was born in the province and spent my idyllic time in a small town where everyone knows you by your kin. Mornings were for climbing trees and afternoons were often filled with adventures exploring the fields. As a child living a simple life, nature was my playground. By mid '90s, we moved to another countryfar away from the familiar, comfortable and happy childhood memories. I don't remember having bitter recollection on the big transition since my parents never forget to make us feel grounded. Also, Abu Dhabi in the early '90s was the ideal place to raise a family. My father has been there since 1990, and even my grandfather in the early days. Like a tectonic shift, my life was rearranged. I became the expat kid.
