gone under sea: an ode to difc's parking areas

The parking areas of Dubai are somewhat fascinating. On one of the rearrest days this city has faced, this being a rainy day, I set out to DIFC just behind all the glossy facades, to take some pictures of the areas that I often find myself looking through the cab window.

eyes to the wind

These colors, this song, this Saturday I spend at the office and not at home.
This past year and this change I long for.

taking the ferry instead of the metro

Having the family over for Christmas has been pure bliss and taking the ferry from Dubai Marina to the Creek proved to be much more interesting than I expected. Our trip ended with a wonderful light lunch at Creekside and some much needed sun bathing.

barcelona furniture

A bit more from my last Friday's walk around Dubai Creek. There's a whole Hindi Street in Bur Dubai. It's so exciting, full of flowers and strange sweets. It makes you appreciate the diversity of this town.

randomly finding food in bur dubai

On our walk around the Dubai Creek, we found a restaurant that was throwing an opening party. They gave us this milky sweet drink, with spices and some freshly made pita bread with honey. Of course, the traditional meat and rice followed.

Spent this Friday at Creekside having coffee and watching the boats along Dubai Creek.
