Island Life

 
According to Wikipedia, an estimated 73.9 percent of the population here is comprised of non-citizens. Here are 4 of them (5 if you count the dog) enjoying a day out on their boat.

No, probably not too many blonde, bikini-clad citizens in Abu Dhabi! haha From the photos you've posted, I'm not surprised about that 74% foreigner statistic. You've shown so many nationalities already! Is there a particular nationality or two that are represented more than others?

It's mostly South Asians followed by other Arabs and Iranians. Next come Westerners and East Asians.

To put this into context, we've over 40 nationalities in my organisation. A real melting pot of countries, cultures, and religions - It's great!
