My Bit of Abu Dhabi Impression

Q is in the Netherlands attending his dad’s retirement party -Congrats, Bart & Wads! I figured I can take a camera as my companion to the Abu Dhabi streets and see what I get. Here are some photos to share with you.

This is the city we live in – somehow I saw its heart better through camera lens. I wonder why.

Look, Two Wheels, Hooray!

Isn’t it just so exhilarating to be on two wheels and cutting through fresh air – especially in crazy Abu Dhabi traffic!

I have been biking to work this winter – it is about half an hour one way and takes me through about 10 km of multi-flavored city: downtown congestion, road barriers, highway bridge, pedestrian side walks, building elevator, construction site, and corniche path – watching sunset over the water front is very therapeutic after a long day at work!   Q caught me one morning as he stopped on the way to the Abu Dhabi airport.

Another exciting development in our lives is that I am learning to ride motorcycle! Yes, in Abu Dhabi – can you believe it?!? I know, I can’t even believe it myself!!! I don’t want to jinx anything so the storytelling will have to wait till I pass the road test next Monday. But in the mean time enjoy the video Q took – thanks for watching my back, sweetie!

More to follow on our two wheels adventure in Abu Dhabi… Stay tuned. :)
