The 4th of July ain't got nothin' on this....


It was National Day yesterday! A day when regular Arabs and foreigners alike have an excuse to use up all their money on petrol, spray foam and loads and loads of flags!

It was great! And I took loads of photographs! But here are the ones I liked best!

The workers from the sub-continent were also given the day off, and they were happy about it too! Many of them would get out of their cars with their flags and dance out on the street.

There had also been fireworks the night before, and a ceremony marking the 40th Anniversary of the birth of the UAE!

Congratulations UAE!
