12091068634_60847d595cUntil now you’ve heard stories of individual taxi drivers and entrepeneurs in the UAE. Today Im going to bring you the voices of several taxi drivers, as they speak about probably the most common theme of my trip: LOVE.

Start talking with a taxi driver in the city of gold and chances are you will get to the topics of relationships, marriage, love and family. Many will tell you that all these things are very closely related and extremely important. Their outlooks and philosophies vary, from the very traditional to the free thinkers who would go as far as to defy their family.  Stories vary from charming to frustrating, and from beautiful to deeply sad.

Today on the podcast, Love in a Dubai Taxi, stories and reflections on love from taxi drivers in the UAE.

Flattr this!

    I think we as Americans are somewhat ignorant to the struggles of migrant workers – leaving families behind, being away from their homeland, etc. These stories are extremely interesting. I am enjoying them very much. Thank you for sharing.

      Heya Nicole! I think its kind of right on the border in the US, many families know this reality and lived it one or two generations ago. Others are more generations removed and yeah… have no idea. Im glad you’re enjoying!!
