A steady job

There are a number of people who have steady jobs in Dubai, like the guys who have small domestic brooms to sweep the sand back.

I came across another one in Dubai Marina.

There are seven or eight kilometres of railing, a man, a bucket and a rag...



All on his own he was doing a good job.

Wipe the rag over the railing for several metres, walk back to get the bucket of water, take it a few metres further on, walk back and wipe the rag over the railing, walk back to get the bucket of water, take it a few metres further on........

My God... Dubai never stops surprising me. I actually never realised that those railings are cleaned as I seem to have never come close enough.

theirs is one of the most stable jobs here in Dubai. They have no idea how lucky they are..offer them a bottle of water while they work and you will get the sweetest smile.
