Bur Dubai

There is more to Dubai than the glitz and glam it is legendary for.  In parts of Dubai the wealth is staggering, but away from the towering 5 star hotels and roaring Ferraris Dubai is real, raw and a blend of Arab, Indian and Pakistani cultures.  This is best seen in the Bur Dubai and Deira neighborhoods.   Traditional Emirati homes, signified by their roof cool systems that look like pigeon roots mixed with Indian spice shops and modest mosques.  Here’s a peak down a Bur Dubai street.
