The Hidden Beauty of Kalba Fujairah

After 10 years of living in Abu Dhabi way back 2007 is my first time to visit Fujairah one of the seven Emirates of United Arab.  It’s just because when i came in this country there’s no chance to go out and to visit some  places.  And the usual thing, busy at work plus overtime.

Well, let’s start in the road going to Kalba in Fujairah. So excited to go there because it was my first time. From the beginning i know that this place is a province no big malls no tallest buildings .. and yes this is what I’m looking for. Something new .. “Mountains” but the mountains here is not the usual mountains that you would see .. it’s a “rock mountain” yes it’s a  solid rock and there’s no trees.  I saw some few tress but it was too dry because of the heat.  After almost four hour of  driving from Abu Dhabi to Kalba and finally here we are.

It was friday afternoon on our way  we saw a fighting toro, here some of my shot. Pleas, excuse the unclear shot.

Fighting Toro  ( local people outdoor sports)

ooppss .. Donkey crossing the road ;D

Kalba Bridge

Found this people picking crabs on a low tide lake (interesting) plus the beautiful background the mountain

after the kalba bridge on the left side i found this amazing view

another great view

far away view .. the white buildings over there is an Ice Factory.

Dessert Sands meet Lake

while driving i took a quick shot from this group Emirati Men with their 4×4 wheels

Dove .. looking some place to landing

and ME .. thinking what’s the NEXT DESTINATION ;D

 

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and
hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden
daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in
the breeze.

      Try for yourself to explore and remember life is full of surprices.

    • Thanks for stopping by rommel .. i really dont have any full details of the fighting toro but as far as i know every friday and starts in the afternoon, But unlike Spanish and Portuguese bullfights, this one is with a difference — it is not bloody and there are no matadors and trophies. And Bullfighting is a tradition in Fujairah.
