The House Of Atreides - #4

Dubai has always been a trading town through the centuries. Nowadays the main trading commodities are the export of oil and the import of tourists and "affordable" labour...

In previous times the main trade was pearls, gold and spices.

This shot was taken at the "famous" Spice Souq in Deira. Deira is the oldest part of Dubai. A souq is basically a market. In Dubai there are various souqs including spice, gold and fabrics.
