United Arab Emirates, day 3

United Arab Emirates, day 3

The fun and action packed days keep following up!

Yesterday saw me having lunch at an Iranian restaurant , pictured above where the kebabs are barbecued outside. Once more an excellent meal was had!

In between our trips and adventures, there's always time for me mint tea for me and some hubbly bubbly for Imad and/or Baader. Imad is enjoying his sheesha at the local sheesha shop.

During the early evening we went off to Global Village, located in Dubailand, it's the region’s first premier cultural, entertainment and shopping destination, celebrating diverse cultures, art, theater, commerce and cuisine from around the world and welcomes more than four million guests per year. Each season, Global Village delivers a wide variety of pioneering new shows and attractions in the heart of Dubailand. Covering an area of 17,200,000 sq ft (1,600,000 m2). The construction of this project was started in 2003 and is now almost complete with two or three projects that are expected to be completed by 2011.

The Global Village is immensely popular, and it was busy during our visit, with a great mix of local people, many neighboring Arab local visitors and the occasional Western person. It's a great way of getting a glimpse from other cultures, I really enjoyed various pavilions and the stuff on offer. Especially the Afghan pavilion had some very colorful local clothes on display.

Outside the Moroccan pavilion a few of these drink sellers were following their trade.

Another great day was had and in the evening we hooked up with Sunil and his friend Anup, who's visiting from India. Now I'm staying at Sunil's place and this is located in Dubai.

Catch you later,
