I was offered a job in 2009 to work and live in Egypt. I travelled to Egypt and stayed for 2 weeks to see if I could live there. The ECD from JWT came over from Dubai to interview me in Egypt. He asked me how the 2 weeks went, I hesitated and asked if he would he would live in Egypt. He told me he was pretty comfortable in Dubai. I turned the job down and flew back home. A week later he called and asked if I would live in Dubai and work out of Cairo. I went to Dubai for a month to see if I could live there and freelanced for a month out of a 5-star hotel. I ended up taking the job and lived in Dubai travelling to Egypt every two weeks.
