Sometimes it’s hard to appreciate just how much in love the people of the UAE are the leaders of the country when you are not Emirati. We are in awe of what has been achieved here and have the utmost respect for the current leaders and those before them. But I imagine that I would be even more in awe if I was Emirati myself.
It’s like being around at the that your country was built from the ground up and living with those leaders who made it possible. What has happened in the UAE is still fresh, not yet 50 years old. And the transformation has been remarkable, there isn’t a country like it in the world.
The Royal Family of Dubai is respected and loved by all who reside here and much admired around the world. But even a little bit more by their fellow people. The same can be said for Abu Dhabi. This video of an elderly Emirate meeting with HH Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, says it all really.
