Happy 40th Birthday
Today, the UAE turns 40. Not a very large number.. but the country has grown vastly in this short amount of time.
There was a time when the people of the Arabian Gulf used to rely on pearl diving, fishing and farming as a source of income. Look at ’em now!
So, I went to the beach today with a few family friends, to enjoy the holiday. Not only did I get to see some awesome National day preps, but caught a few beautiful pix of the beach itself too =]
I specially love the one above. The kid was so gleeful as he splashed around with his beach ball. It was very sad to see it float away after a while though… Poor kid..
All in all, It was a beautiful day!
