Who says we're missing the dried fish back home? Actually we don't because we have some good quality of dried fishes in Souq Alsamak located in the heart of the city, a few meters away from Al Ain Bus Station. We also love to buy shrimps and crabs. Prices are quite reasonable not to mention that the vendors are so kind. They can even talk in languages that you can imagine- English, Arabic, Tagalog, Japanese, Hindi, German- depending on how they see you, I mean nationality wise.
These photos were taken sometime in January 2011, a few weeks ago after my hubby's first knee operation. Hubby likes to go to the market to buy fresh fruit and vegetables especially during the time of his recuperation. I'm telling you, he's the most hardheaded patient that I have ever taken care of. Anyway, I couldn't agree more with him that veggies and fruits in Al Ain Souq are better than the ones in hypermarkets.

Word of the day: Souq is the Arabic word for market. Salaam!
