SWEA on tour

Today I did a tour for some of the local SWEA girls, at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and at the Wahat al Karama. All but one of them (she arrived only three weeks ago!) had of course already been there many times with their visitors, but they were now keen on actually getting some more information about the architecture and decorations.

There wasn't a lot of people there at all this morning, we could take our time and have a good look around, and grab some lovely photos without too many other people in them. So lucky!
We even took a golf buggy over to get a closer look of the Sheikh Zayed Mausoleum.

It's always a bit different guiding people who live here compared to tourists, who only just come and go. But we had such a great morning, and I especially enjoyed showing them the Wahat al Karama monument, as none of them really had visited there before, or even noticed it. It is a place which often is forgotten or bypassed on the normal city tours, but I really enjoy its story and symbolism. It so is worth a visit.

As a bonus, you get great shots of the SZGM from this side of the road!
