Suddenly in UAE
Middle East meets West.
On a bus. There are seats reserved for ladies at the front. Yes, they pay a lot of respect to women.
Ok, blah blah blah street is where Kam likes to go ... I am as good as blind sometimes.
The body of water of Dubai - The Creek
Dubai is the trading hub of the Middle East. Goods are shipped here, then the boats (forgot what the name of the boat is) take the goods across the gulf to countries like Iran, Iraq ...
Waiting for a cab.
Water taxi - Abra.
Shwarma is quick, cheap and yummy. It's an alternative to hamburger in the UAE.
In Dubai, they have swelling oil and trading income. And there are only, if I remember correctly, a couple of millions locals to share the wealth. So you bet they are rich.
Abras running back and forth the shores.
The gold market.
Holy! That is weight lifting equipment!
Taking a break from work - Indians supply most of the labor resource in UAE. They compose over half of the population.
The big pray at Friday noon.
English is quite commone in Dubai. And most people speaks simple English.
The iconic coffee pot.
The Creek is not wide nor rough. It's the most friendly and touchable water in the middle of a city Kam has ever come across. Feels calm standing on the shore watching Abras and seagulls passing by.
Quiet during the day ...
But around 6pm, the street heats up. People come out and hang around. The street is the night club for everyone.
Taking a break on Gulf shore.
