Dubai pictures
These are from a visit [2nd -6th April 2009]to my Indian engineer friend Madhu who is now working there. We stayed at an excellent traditional hotel - The Hijaz Heritage Motel - in the old Al Ras quarter in Deira. The hotel is part of a group including the traditional Heritage House and the Al-Ahmadiya School. Deira is separated from the other old part, Bur Dubai, by the Creek which we frequently crossed by the small boats, the Abras, for one Dhiram.
