Almost there, An old boat reaching tomorrow land by stem

Dubai- UAE
The contrast between this old transportation mean and the glorious cityscape could tell you a lot about Dubai story.
Sea was always the hope of this desert-surrounded city; since the pearl age through offshore oil and freezone international trade till reaching current days where controlling the seashore and creating islands and cannels is one of the city features.
Although it is far away from there now, Dubai is still trying to be connected to its heritage, from its local’s customs to the shape of that sail-like building to the still alive old habits of its people such as their passion of desert, houses and boating.
