From Tourist Club to Al Zahiyah

Posted on Updated on

Its weekend and time for all to explore Abu Dhabi. Tourist Club – no more the same as it is officially changed to Al Zahiyah. Many changes happening, starting with the name change, old buildings getting demolished in order to give way to new ones, new roads, more cameras…. it goes on. The good or bad thing about Abu Dhabi is once it is gone, gone for ever. You don’t see it again. All for good.

So once again another evening, another weekend, and time to take some rest and call friends and family. For many expats, a same routine.. In this photo above, a newspaper delivery boy sitting behind his cycle and calling someone. They work 7 days starting as early as 3:00 am. I know this as I get my newspapers delivered well before 4:00 am every day. Truly unsung heroes.
