Deira is the oldest part of Dubai, on the eastern front of the Dubai Creek. It houses the Gold Souk which Cat holds much affection for. It is also Dubai's most famous and visited souk, with a labyrinth of covered walkways that is home to hundreds of retailers offering a very large selection of jewelry made from gold, silver, diamond and other precious metals and stones.
|Dubai, City of Gold!|
|Cat's eyes literally lit up|
|where do we begin?|
It's a fascinating place that should be on the list of everyone visiting Dubai, even if you don't intend to buy (in this case, my dear wife).
this display immediately caught our eye
|wonder how much a vest would cost?|
|beyond our wildest imagination|
|'worth its weight in gold', literally!|
From this point onwards we’ll let the photos do the talking:
|strangely, no security personnel in sight|
|this intrigued us Boys|
|distinctly gangsta style|
|we're in the 'hood!|
|for a Muslim country, they're pretty open minded|
|the Lord Jesus flanked by his guardians?|
|this crucifix was really appealing to me|
|this one too|
|we'll take them all|
|in our dreams, of course|
|wonder if I can ever afford this|
Finally managing to tear herself away, Cat was crestfallen as she joined us to make our way back across the Dubai Creek.
