When you are here, we feel as though we are at home. The are gives out a very Indian feeling, unlike the city, which is only high rise buildings and fancy cars. We get to see the original city here in old Dubai here
We took the metro to reach here. The metro station where we have to get off is also decorated in such a way as to reflect the traditional look of Dubai.. what were the original professions, trade etc are all reflected in the metro station here. Unfortunately I missed to take a picture of the station
We then walked to the gold souk first. I had no intention of buying any jewelry, yet wanted to see what it is like. As we were there during the DSF (Dubai Shopping Festival), the whole place was decorated and there were heavy discounts everywhere. A bright flash of yellow hit us as we entered the street
We got to see the world's largest ring here, as awarded by the Guinness records
I cannot dream of wearing any of these!!
From here we walked on to the spice souk, which is my calling!!
We got to see so many spices, many that we have not even heard of!!
From here we took a short boat ride on an old fashioned open boat
This model boat was outside the Dubai museum to indicate their traditional tradeThat brings us to the end of our Dubai vacation dear friends.
On the stitchy front, I started on my next project - Sweet Summer by Lizzie Kate
