Posted:A serious word of warning...I've heard of a number of cases where people have gone over to the UAE (United Arab Emirates) for work, performing, tradework and otherwise.

A number of them resulted in very unpleasant treatment, in particular the women, but also a number of men.

There's a number of cultural reasons why Westerners may have trouble adjusting, and sometimes the cultural reasons are genuine and sometimes garbage.

If you get in trouble in a foreign culture, you often have nowhere you know of to turn to, so this situation can get veyr messey very quickly.

Please please please be very wary of work in this area, and try to get current references from westerners you know of who have retruned happily.

If anything seems dodgy, or too good to be true, be very very careful...

I have sent them an email asking for any NZ performers currently in NZ who have worked with this person and I for one would not go over there without talking to several people who relate good experiences.

Think of the number of dodgy club-owners/businesspeople you know of in your area and then apply that percentage to this situation.

Please, everyone, be very very careful, (especially the ladies!)
