There’s a place in Sharjah, the neighboring Emirate of Dubai (just a few minutes away from where we live) called Al Qasba, a quite popular waterside development of offices, shops, restaurants and a big ferris wheel named Eye of the Emirates. (not that big compared to the London Eye)
We got into this ferris wheel once and I actually enjoyed it and got out smiling. And I’m not even a big fan of ferris wheels after I projectile vomitted inside a moving ferris wheel when I was 8.
Ew. Next topic. The lamp posts look elegant and beautiful I like to stare at it against the blue sky.
We were there one early Friday morning when almost everyone is still in bed. The place gets really crowded during evenings on weekends but how do we know, we aren’t brave enough to drive to Sharjah when it gets hectic. When you live in the UAE, you’ll know the meaning of “hectic” when you see the Dubai-Sharjah road at peak times.
Small wooden boats in Al Qasba: empty and sitting peacefully on a Friday morning.
We found something interesting in Al Qasba but I am not sure if these are still there now since it has been months since we went last. The silhouettes!
They were everywhere and there are cute ones like this as well.
And this really jolly dude looks so alive. If we ever return there, I know Pristine would say, this silhouette looks like Bruno Mars, with the iconic hat and all.
But wait, Pristine just saw me writing this and said “it has breasts so it couldn’t be a boy!” So not Bruno Mars, probably not.
Hope you enjoyed the little tour to Al Qasba in Sharjah. If you live in Dubai, I think it’s worth a visit and a bit of traffic but don’t quote me on that! 🙂
