    Everyday Dubai


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     When some think of Dubai it conjures up images of extravagant buildings and great wealth, but for Lynda Martinez, everyday life is different.

    Martinez, an expat and mother of three calls Dubai home. She said, "My favorite thing about Dubai is the diversity of the population."
    - taliaday, CNN iReport producer

    Dubai is usually discussed in superlatives - the biggest this, the most expensive that. I understand the fascination with the glitz of Dubai in a way, but when you live there, it gets old pretty fast. These pictures show a slice of normal, every day life in Dubai.
