We've been to Abu Dhabi yesterday for a beach getaway (see previous post). It took us about half an hour to find the beach car park.
From the beach car park, one must take the pedestrian underpass, just like what we did, to be able to reach the corniche and the beach. Here are some of the interesting art on the tile walls that I've noticed while we were walking along the underpass.
I am guessing that this is the traditional bedouin "hair dance" called khaleejia in
which women are often dressed in colorful and long cloak called Jalabiyas. Women will toss
their hair from side to side while the music is playing. Click here to watch the video.
This one is quite obvious. Falconry is an important part of desert life of the Emiratis and has
been practised in the UAE for centuries. We all know that falcons remain as the key
symbol of the United Arab Emirates.

with today's high rise buildings.
