It took me a while but here I am again!.. About an year and half ago, I went to visit one on my many cousins ( …as previously said in another post “my family is a big one and it’s literally everywhere“).
My cousin works in the UAE at the moment… and she lives in Abu Dhabi, for a wonderer soul like myself it took less than a sec to pack my bags the moment she invited me there !!
Abu Dhabi is a very, very different world, I mean yes like Dubai it is working it’s way through an extraordinary ” little over the top ” image makeover with big skyscraper of all form and size… or Huge Malls at every corner ….But you know you are in a different culture in a different environment…
You may not find a lot of museums or historical sites in particular but well… that is because even if you don’t realize it, you are standing right in the middle of the desert! Yes, you may not feel like it or see it now…. all covered up by enormous buildings, infinite roads… and even fake grass… but well it is surrounded by an amazing well done “scenographic show” , which it almost feels real!
And I yes I ‘ll give it that… it is a good location for a vacation based on entertainment, but alghough it’s strong points seem to be based on this industry… there are yet some places that really took my breath away for they’re marvelous decorations and architecture like “The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque” probably one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my entire life.
The feeling in the small bazar market trapped under the gaudiness of some shopping center or the perfumes of a thousand spices everywhere… Well I guess that’s enough talking, so let me show you a piece of my Abu dhabi experience.
