Green Desert ! - United Arab Emirates

It is indeed a wonder how the barren desert has been transformed into such a livable place. I was fortunate enough to work in UAE with a leading Bank in Abudhabi and Dubai in 2007.You have a multinational expat population there and the work environment was real great like working in a global village with colleagues from - ,India,Pakistan,Holland, Lebanon,Egypt,Africa,Philipines,China Syria,US,UK, ,Australia.......whew folks its a long list ! You also get the latest in International fashion in Malls here. A few snaps here - i thought instead of the desert i shall focus on the green part .... Have a cool view.
