gold souk

Lucy and I took an outing by ourselves to the Deira gold souk today. I had this idea that it would be this amazing open-air, very authentic market, complete with dust and dirt but filled with many Middle Eastern treasures, but I was kind of bummed. All the stores were air-conditioned and it was more like a cheap strip mall than like my favorite markets from Hong Kong. I was able to capture a few images, though, from our time there.

and sweet Lucy's sweaty little head. this was pretty much her state of being while we were in Dubai.
