A Thorny Issue - #80


People sometimes think that Dubai and the UAE are all sand and not much else except for the odd 5 star hotel and a camel or two.

There are some great deserts, however there are also rugged mountains with their own fauna and foliage eking out an existance.

These tress are pretty hardy and widespread with their thorny antics.

I am one of those who thought it was mostly sand and beach (and cranes) until seeing your blog. Thank you for showing us all sides of Dubai.
