Underpass

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES | Wednesday, 18 Feb 2009 | Views [472]

This is an underpass to and from the corniche - a 5 mile run with a bike path from the west end of town to the east (or the other way around)


Marin bikes

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES | Wednesday, 18 Feb 2009 | Views [906]

The biking is really fun and getting funner...Part of it is, that there are many pedestrian underpasses and the ramps (for wheel chairs) are different every time - narrow, with lots of bends or corners AND they go up and down, so, with a bike with no ... Read more >


Es ist nicht alles gold was glaenzt

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES | Wednesday, 18 Feb 2009 | Views [467]

I made a HUGE mess with my credit card (have you ever tried paying your card twice in the same month and not having enough Moola both times? Does that go into the same category as an over achiever?), and it spun me into another attack of anxiety – my ... Read more >

Is it green in Abu Dhabi's Parks?

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES | Sunday, 15 Feb 2009 | Views [434]

The parks do look pretty nice and the plants are tropical like oasis’, so lots of palm trees. But –of course- they are all very organized and neat and there is no dirt on the ground at all – I think they even sweep the parks. But people do use ... Read more >

2/7 I got a bike today. Here a picture: Now, this is more like it! Coby came with me, after we spent 3 hours in an Internet Cafe - leaving Coby hungry and grumpy, he was still willing to wait, since I had a gazillion requests to the bike shop people ... Read more >
