This week at the Current we ventured to the Middle East for the first time, got in the World Cup spirit, showed you how to connect with us, and more! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.

United Arab Emirates


The United Arab Emirates was our Country of the Week. We explored its interesting history from centuries before all the way to how the UAE was formed, and much more. Take a look at our profile HERE.

In our Travel Guide we took a look at the wide array of destinations the UAE has to offer. From the luxury of world-famous Dubai to the lesser known deserts and mountains, there’s a lot to see. Get our guide HERE.

In our Currency Spotlight we took a look at the relatively short history of the dirham as well as the UAE economy as a whole. While it remains dependent on the petroleum industry, parts of the country have managed to diversify. Read more HERE.
