Street Scene: Big Bikes




Big bikes aren't my fave but I found these big bikes pretty cool. Cool enough to amused me. Maybe it has something to do with the color (I reckon). Photos shown above were taken last night while we were waiting for the bus at Khalifa Street. I was a bit hesitant when I asked these Emarati men if I can take some snaps when they were about to leave. My sister-in-law liked the white one.

Word of the day: layl is the Arabic word for night. Salaam.

  4. Very cool bike designs. In your top night photo, your city resembles mine with the palm trees, buildings and vehicles. Interesting post!

  7. @Photo Cache,
    They are locals(emaratis). They were talking in Arabic when I approached them to seek for permission. The Emarati accent was so obvious.
