When asked about where I live the reaction is always with amazement, no one can deny that Dubai has become an icon of modernity and futuristic aspiration but for me, Dubai exists by the creek or al Khoor as its called here, the place where it all started and where most immigrants reside, its not just the aesthetics of the place but also the sense of diversity in a different flavor  a flavor that I happen to like, this place is an obvious contrast to the high buildings and the cosmopolitan scene, it almost feels as if its a different country within a city . here are images of some people you might come across.
