Fences #4

Its design is quite obvious.Mosque is the house of worship of our Muslim brothers and sisters. You will find these fences along Central district in then Sheikha Salama Mosque Roundabout which was replaced with a three-lane bricks road with traffic lights monitored by radar.

Word of the Day: Sheikh or Shaikh is an arabic word  for elderly male members of a tribe or a term of respect, it is comparable to elder in English language. Shaikha or Sheikha is the term for elderly female leader. UAE rulers are Sheikhs including their offsprings whereas in Kuwait they are called emirs.

    Will post an arabic word in every entry photo of mine. I do speak basic arabic and bought a dictionary as well. There are minor or little differences between Saudi Arabia and here in UAE when it comes to arabic language.

    What an absolutely gorgeous site. I feel home sick for Al Ain after seeing all the photos ... and yet I AM home, in Central Australia.

    Al Ain is one of the nicest large cities I have seen and you are capturing it very well.

    Wish I could experience what is it like living in Central Australia.
