photos: the narrow lanes of Bastakiya

Revisiting the Bastakiya arts quarter in Dubai, one of our favorite spots in town, a lovely little place to wander the narrow alleys, to sit in a quaint cafe and sip Turkish tea in those beautiful little glasses with gold embellishment. The bougainvillea is always flowering, always bursting with color and providing welcome shade.

Thanks Linh, this is one of the lovely spots of Dubai.

Emma, me too. It's such a giving flower, and a forgiving one too ;-)
