Karama Market

A comment by Abu Dhabi Daily Photograph got me to go back to Karama to visit the Karama market. It's apparently a very infamous market, known for it's fake branded goods. You can get it all. From Omega watches to Cross pens and from Man U shirts to Gucci shoes. All for a fraction of the cost. 

Some of the things I bargained for (but didn't buy) are a Breitling watch for AED 250/- and a Cross pen for AED 49/-. Remember to look out for the shady salesman who will approach you to show you the éxclusive' stuff.

Nestled in the heart of Dubai is Karama, a bustling and popular residential area of the city. Karama is characterised by old and low rise buildings cluttered with satellite TV dishes and a web of wires and cables criss crossing from one building to another. 

Karama is full of Indian eateries with almost every well known restaurant chain in India having set up shop. The dominance of the Indian community is evident if you make a trip one of these days in the evenings. The evening brings out colored light steamers and lanterns across the balconies of the residents as the community celebrates Diwali, the festival of lights.

Foggy in Dubai

Difficult driving conditions this morning with heavy fog everywhere!!!!! The bright side of course is that the weather is changing and its time to bring out the camping gear. :-)
