Out on the streets of Dubai

Winters are so irritating!! The chill just does not seem to spare us!! Today it rained too!! Like here, today also I would like to recapitulate a bright sunny day of my sunny vacation.

As said here, people tend to associate Dubai with only sky grazing architecture, luxury and gold. But we often tend to forget that it is blessed with the beautiful Gulf sea and the Arabian Desert.
Dubai can be a wonderful sea resort with its warm blue water. However, sun bathing is possible only during winters because of the scorching equatorial sun. I had described my stint in the Jumeirah Beach here. Unfortunately we visited the Arab Emirates in October so the sun was not merciful upon us. But that did not deter us, the sea freaks from getting dipped in the sea!! My parents chose to stay in the hotel; so when we returned, they were shocked to see us fully sun burnt!!

My mother in law accuses me of tanning her fair son repeatedly whenever we take a beach vacation (which we often do ) :D. Anyways, I do not mind burnt skin as long as I have the privilege to play in the sea!!
After our dip in the warm waters, we went for a stroll on the deserted beach. Nobody else was crazy enough to to be found there!! Then we went to Deira City Centre for shopping. It was  a hot but amazing afternoon. 

crystal clear water...

blown by the wind...

as tall as the Burj Khalifa..

the skyline against the beach...

getting further burnt in the sun...


the board says it all...


Matar Bin Fadil mosque..

in front of the metro station...

the famous Sheikh Zayed Road..along which are all the skyscrapers...

with the 'Nol' card meaning fare in Arabic..

wish I could have this giant shoe!!
