Crossing the Creek

On a stroll in the historic area of Bastakiya in Dubai, a couple of weeks ago in 40 degrees heat, I passed by an Abra Station. Abras are the small boats used for transportation across the Dubai Creek that splits Dubai into the Bur Dubai and Deira side. The ride is only 1 dirhams!


  1. I have been there and done that :):) Shaira you brought back a FLOOD of memories the pic!

  2. They're planning a 4 dirhams airconditioned covered abra! It just won't be the same anymore...
