Solitude in the Old Bastakiya District in Dubai

I visited the Dubai Creek last night and was amazed by all the activities there. Families having picnics, tourists enjoying the dinner cruise, children running around with their nannies after them, young couples taking longs walk and swooning.
I decided to carry on walking wthout any fixed destination and reached a quiet and tranquil place towards the end of the creek's stretch. I could see narrow lanes and courtyards and was tempted to head towards this mysterious place. I later realised that I had reached the old Bastakiya district of Dubai.

For your information, the old Bastakiya district with its narrow lanes and tall wind-towers gives a tantalizing glimpse of old Dubai. Immediately to the east of Al Fahidi Fort is the largest concentration of traditional courtyard houses with windtowers.In the past, the city was famous for a mass of windtowers which lined the Creek on either side. These were not merely decorative; they were the only means of cooling houses in the days before electricity.

It seems I was the only living soul in those quarters and I felt as if I was dreaming and was in a movie set. I cannot explain this feeling but perhaps some of the pictures might be able to describe what I felt last evening. So tranquil and so surreal...

Yes, I am going back there again...

Camping at Khorfukhan, Fujeirah

Wow, I haven't had time to sleep ever since I landed on the shores of Dubai!!! My cousin used to tell me that sleep is a luxury in this part of the world and how true... By the time we reach home from all our adventures its usually 1:00 am in the morning. By the time we get into bed its usually after 3 am with thet weekends stretching to 5:00 in the morning!

Went out camping with a group of Darjeelingey and Mallu friends during the Eid holidays to Khorfukan, a beach side resort areain the Fujheirah emirate. We moved away from the beach and headed towards the dense hills and for once I felt at ease and at home. By the time we pitched camp it was already 10:00 pm. With the bonfire, music, barbecue and beverages in full swing it was time to party.
We are a planning on a "boys only" camping trip next time as the ladies do not seem too comfortable camping outside and miss the comfort of their cushy beds. Sorry sweethearts, its only goona be only boys next time!!!
The best part of the trip? Sleeping under the starlit sky with the mountains all sorrounding me... hearing the silence of the night.
