My husband and I moved to Abu Dhabi for this fall for my sabbatical at NYU-Abu Dhabi. In the coming months, I will posting our travels and foods we have sampled along the way. We arrived on Monday and moved into an apartment close to campus. It's a great 2 bed/2 bath space with marble tile floors, great kitchen with laundry machine and awesome air conditioning. It's completely furnished with everything we need. Our apartment over looks Qasr al-Hosn the most historic landmark of the Emirate. Just past that about a block is campus and just another block or so is the Persian Gulf. Here's a link to the map of where we live and where campus is.
Here are more photos of our apartment:
