Categories: Middle East & North Africa, North America, U.S.A., United Arab Emirates, Law, Politics, Travel

UAE resident SolitudDeGitana questions whether anyone knows what the amount of information you have to/should divulge during airport interrogations [1].
“(T)he woman over at luggage inspection started asking me a string of other questions, namely about whether I had a boyfriend where I'm living in the MIddle East. I answered her, but in retrospect, I really wish I would have asked her what business of hers that was, seeing as what she really needed to know was whether I had fruit/cheese/meat in my luggage and not about my romantic life. It's not a huge deal, but it just felt very, very odd…,” she wrote.
