Abu Dhabi Letter to Holyhead

by Dave
(Abu Dhabi)

I am a Holyhead boy, currently, however, I am living and working in Dubai/ Abu Dhabi following the redundancies last year at Angelsey Aluminium Metal (AAM).

I'm dearly hoping a job will come up back on my home island of Holy Island which I miss so much. The coastline around from Rhoscolyn to South Stack is part of me and is the best you can get!

I have spent Christmas and New Year over here on my own away from my wife and son and every day I just feel like hopping on a plane back home to breathe the salty air of the Anglesey coast.

Hopefully I will be back soon, in the mean time I will have to put up with this desert sunshine and the beach here in Dubai.

It's not a patch on Trearddur Bay, Porth-Y-Post and Porth Dafarch though ............how I miss my walks with my old dog Mica.

Kind regards,

Sounds interesting. Can you tell us more about your experience in Dubai? What is it like to work on the new smelter site? How different to Tinto Holyhead? what's the food and lodgings like?
