Where's the airport?

I have here an example of some whingeing expat doggerel.
The quality is very poor; it should be writ on bog-er roll.
I loudly broadcast my complaints like some demented cockerel,
And yet about the source of my displeasure I do bugger all.

I'm very well acquainted with the letters page of
I fill those column-inches with complaints about the rent I pays,
And how I think the driving's worse here than in
And how Dubai would much improve by mimicking all Western ways,

Except, of course, the ones I disapprove of, such as income tax,
The need at any time of year not to forget our plastic macs;
Not having an address (I send my friends a map by telefax);
Remembering to lock my car, lest it's not there when I get back.
