DUBAI (24 May - 1 June 2003)

Just 15 km North of Dubai is the emirate of Sharjah.

It too has a creek.

Plenty of museums too.
This one is the Al Hisn Fort.
The nearby museum of Islam was excellent, but photos were not allowed!

There are Wind Towers everywhere but the round shape of this one is unique.

The Shopping Mall was incredible to see, even if the shops were a little disappointing.

It was quite spectacular, and very cool after the scorching heat outside.

We managed to pick up the ultimate kitsch souvenier....
....a Mosque Clock.
Now we can wake to the Muezzin's call whenever we like!!!
