The United Arab Emirates or simply the UAE, is a country located on the eastern side on the Arabian Peninsula. It consists of 7 Emirates – Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain.
I have lived in the United Arab Emirates for more than half a decade. During this time, I am witness to a great transformation that fast-tracked the country into the 20th century. Rising from dry desert lands are phenomenal world class architecture. This photo was taken in 2009 before the completion of the Burj Khalifa (today known as the tallest building in the world).
I would like to nominate Camille King (camwithacam.tumblr.com) and Rommel thesophomoreslump2.com) to complete a country.
Thanks Marianne, great shot. It’s been twelve years since I visited the United Arab Emirates, I bet I would notice the changes! Over to Camille and Rommel.
