Recent History on the Arabian Coast
Looking over graded land - being prepped for another high rise or seaside resort - and looking toward the Arabian Gulf, a lone wooden dhow sails near shore. One of the most amazing things about spending time in Dubai is that, when you look, you can still see history as it has progressed so quickly from its roots as a pearl diving town, to a trading port, to a business and tourism metropolis. Much like the hazy desert sunset, taking an abra on Dubai Creek or dhow on the Sea probably feels much like it did 50 years ago prior to big oil and opulent architecture.
