Photographer's Note

I go back to the Middle East and my last year journeys.

Here three pictures from the Dubai souk. I threw dice on what to choose as the main upload. Observe the clothes of the guys. Even in India nowadays the men are often dressed in Western-style. Here as you can see the guys have very strange trousers and shirts in different pastel colours. It is a common view in the old parts of Dubai. I asked one guy where he was from and he was Pakistani. Maybe they are from Afganistan or Bangladesh?

UAE population: 72% male (it means only 28% women).. Total expat population - 88% (so only 12% Emirati).

My hotel was near the big souks so I went there quite often. The display of spices was the best compared with Iran or Oman.
