Hy­giene is one thing, but re­spect is some­thing else

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

Let’s get one thing straight peo­ple. Be­fore we even con­sider the mat­ters of hy­giene and the of­fen­sive­ness of un­washed bod­ies, the flout­ing of dress codes and the lack of ba­sic com­mon cour­tesy, think about ex­actly where you are. You live in the UAE, a Mus­lim coun­try and you are duty bound to re­spect the cul­ture and your Mus­lim hosts. Gym kit is for the gym, it is not for the Mall, the su­per­mar­ket, the school run and def­i­nitely not for restau­rants. When you bare your shoul­ders, knees and midriff it is of­fen­sive to the peo­ple that let you share their coun­try and al­low you to live here so com­fort­ably. When you fail to dress ap­pro­pri­ately you are be­ing bla­tantly dis­re­spect­ful. Apostrophiser Dubai
