Notes on the Geography of The U.A.E. (Dubai): Dubai Creek
Hands down, the most interesting thing in Dubai is the active wharf along the Creek. It's as good as a traditional market and less fattening.
The boats mostly go back and forth to Iran.
Everything is stacked on the dock; there's not much risk of rain.
Not exactly Singapore or Rotterdam.
Let's make a little list, beginning with lumber from Chile.
Pipes from somewhere.
Loaded one by one.
Domestically made tiles.
Shampoo, probably from Indonesia.
Blankets, origin unknown.
Freezers from Japan.
Japanese air conditioners.
Chinese light bulbs.
Pole-mounted fans, origin unknown.
The mothers of Iran want nothing but the best for their children. Upset tummy? Call Nurse Harvey.
Tired from a long day on the docks.
