This week, we do things a bit differently. First and foremost, we welcome two guest photographers who have become our first contributors outside of The Tryptic Note, Marcus Monteiro and Rohan Aarons. Secondly, it was kind of a field trip which resulted in this photo blog.
One of the ideas behind this blog is to make people aware of their city and its history, so to actually visit the place with a group of people was interesting. We visited Majlis Ghorfat Umm al Sheif, which is located in Jumeirah. It is a tourist attraction. However I’d never heard of the place despite working in the next neighbourhood. It is a small structure built in 1955 and was used by Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum as a summer resort. Despite being used by the Sheikh, the structure is quite modest and built for functionality.
