I have been a resident of UAE for more than five years now but I never had an idea that there's a bird sanctuary in the heart of urbanized Dubai, not until last Saturday when my kids asked me to go to Jumeirah Beach. It was humid and foggy afternoon with blazing 40 degree Celsius temperature. On our way to Ras Al Khor, I was looking at the sky through my lens. As usual, sky watching is one of my favorite things to do while stuck in a long trip.
All of the sudden, Joel (my son) told me "look Mama! while pointing his fingers towards the scenery. My husband told me that it's a bird sanctuary and the entrance is for free. Our plan was to drop off my youngest brother to his place of work and we will go to Jumeirah Beach. I told the kids that we will visit the sanctuary sometime next month. For the meantime, the picture shown above will be enough for us. I know that it doesn't look nice but through this photo, we will start counting down the days until we will finally set our feet to Ras Al Khor bird sanctuary.

Word of the day: al tayr is the Arabic word for bird. Salaam!
