Bastakiya

One fine weekend at Bastakiya in the Old Dubai.

Al Bastakiya is a historic district in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Al Bastakiya is named after the Bastak region of Iran, from where many Iranians emigrated to Dubai in the early 18th century. The construction of Al Bastakiya dates back to the 1890s. In its prime, the locality was capable of supporting 60 housing units, most of which were separated by narrow, winding lanes.

I just like this tree in Bastakiya. Its somewhat magical and mystical.
