A city

AGS_5389-Edit-Edit-2

A vibrant and live city, Dubai !

I remember coming to this city on early 2000, right above the immigration counter there was a quote “It takes generations to build a city, we are doing it in less than one”

It is remarkable to see how they city was developed in few years to this level.

The credit for making this remarkable city, without any doubt goes to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. In his own word he says., “Dubai will never settle for anything less than first place.” He further adds, “Most people talk; we do things. They plan; we achieve. They hesitate; we move ahead. We are living proof that when human beings have the courage and commitment to transform a dream into reality, there is nothing that can stop them.”

Colours, colours, colours every where!

Beautiful, bright, vibrant colours with friendly shop keepers. If this is what you are looking for, head down to the souk near the creek in Diera, Dubai.

A location is a popular tourist attraction and close to the Hindu temple in Dubai. These shop keepers sell anything from traditional arabic dress to Dubai souvenir. These is even one shop which sells antiques.

My suggestion will be to go there during early morning hours or late evening to see the light passing through the roof above the souk street which is a spectacular sight to see.

Colours of Venice

Venice Colour (1)

One of the most colourful cities in the world, Venice. A colourful street scene from there.

The gondola land, that is what I like to call it. The gondola is a traditional, flat-bottomed Venetian rowing boat, well suited to the conditions of the Venetian lagoon. Then there is this beautiful bight colour walls you only find there. You can never fund these colours, anywhere in the world.
