Skywatch Friday- Random Sky Shots

This is the Hazza Mosque at 3rd street of Al Mutaredh District that I featured few weeks ago ( Jan. 31st to be exact) with gloomy sky, this time it's sunny with lovely clouds.

Sheikh Zayed Roundabout by day. I've posted an entry about the said roundabout but it was by night. With these photos you can see the details of the statue of Sheikh Zayed.

Just want to share this information especially for those who are planning to travel here in Al Ain City.  Say you are travelling from emirate of Dubai to Al Ain City via Dubai-Al Ain road, one indication that you are in the emirate of Abu Dhabi ( Al Ain belongs to the emirate of Abu Dhabi) is the presence of date palm trees that separates the road according to the direction of travel.

Entry post for Skywatch Friday hosted by Klaus with Team members Slyvia, Louise, Wren, Sandy and Fishing Guy. Thank you Skywatch team.

Word of the day: usbuu' is the arabic word for (a) week. Example: one week: wahid usbuu', two weeks: ith'nayn usbuu'. 

Salaam to all! Happy sky watching!
