can\'t be united kingdom cause u said ur turtles need more a cooler(and it\'s too cold and rainy there),u said morocco was kind of close but not really...so my bet is U.A.R ...and if it is,is that where u born or where u live right now? btw,i don\'t wanna be indiscreet,so up to u to answer or not,but ur surely make us search for it...:)

A little bit of history...The \"R\" in U.A.R is for republic.that was a independant arab-muslin union made in 1958 by the fusion of Egypt and Syria.It\'s ended in 1961 when the Syria got out but the Egypt use the name till 1971...And if u don\'t care that\'s all good...I just like give long explanation....lol :D

I think it\'s supposed to be Al-Jubail, In Saudi Arabia, I wish I would have had more time to explore but since I was in the military, we had a lot of rules. I was also in Bahrain for a couple of weeks, I didn\'t see much of anything there.

i don\'t know much about saudi arabia i\'ve never been there..but Dubai is way too different..u could find people from all nationalities and it is an open-minded country unlike what is known about the arab world especially that part (except for the pets thing they don\'t get it)
