Echos Of My Neighbourhood

Visit to RAK – Ras Al Khaimah – Echoes of my neighbourhood.

On Thursdays, I share pictures about ‘Echos of my Neighbourhood.

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple and you can find out more about it through this link.


During the course of last week, I ventured further than my immediate neighbourhood – Dubai to another Emirate, Ras Al Khaimah (which means the top of the tent in Arabic) for a couple of days with my family.

RAK is one of the seven emirates that comprises the UAE and on a steady, leisure drive, it took us two and a half hours to get there, though I hear some can drive there at the break-neck speed of an hour. RAK is pretty and quaint with the rugged Hagar mountains, desert, healthy hot springs, the Arabian Gulf and oasis that surrounds it. Their lifestyle is also not as fast paced or as diverse as Dubai.

Below are just some of the photos I took. Will possibly share more another day.

Lady Lee takes us to India for her son’s wedding. Beautiful, vibrant, and auspicious ceremony; do take a peek 🙂

  1. I have been there! To some of the same museums. I had some delightful female students (2nd grade) when teaching in Abu Dhabi and they were originally from Ras Al Khaimah. I enjoyed visiting there very much.

      1. I went with a bus tour (very small bus) and met some interesting tourists…one was Swiss and the other was a very well educated Bangladeshi woman living in California on her way home from a visit to her family..maybe I will share some of the pics and the story of the tour on my blog one day.

  2. Such a strange alien landscape! At least that’s how it seems to me in my rainy northern climate! It’s good t be reminded that so many different environments exist on our tiny little planet. Thanks for sharing!
