More photos from Dubai

The photo on the left is a scene of the dwoks (wooden boats now with diesel engines) that tranverse the Dubai inlet to the sea that separates the city. The fleet of dwoks are part of the Dubai transit system (yes, that have billion dollar fully automated metro system too). However, the dwoks are the best way to move around...the photo on the left is the original home of the Sheik of Maktoum, he was the leader of the Bani Yas tribe that settled Dubai in the 1830's. It is his sons that have ruled the kingdom since and his original home is a historic site...
