A few weeks ago we stayed the night in Abu Dhabi with some friends. We went the beach one day and to a museum the next. We had a great time! While at the beach I attempted to capture women in their traditional clothing, abayas and shelas. This attire is required during daily outings regardless of the event. Some women were swimming in their abayas and head coverings. It was, for sure, very interesting. Now I understand why a few of my Arabic co-teachers dislike going to the beach…I’m assuming that it’s just not same with a black robe on. However, kudos to those women that make lemonade or ,since we’re over here, leban (Middle Eastern drinkable yogurt).
