UAE: Dubai Creek

On Tuesday I got four postcards: one from the United Arab Emirates, one from Kazakhstan, one from Australia and one from Austria.

The card from the United Arab Emirates shows the Dubai Creek. The Dubai Creek is a natural saltwater creek. In earlier times it was home to a wide variety of marine life. Once it was an important element in establishing the commercial position of Dubai, as it was the city's only harbour and was used for pearl diving and fishing. 


Stamp:
Emirates Aluminium (from set of four) (issued 24-02-2010)


Thank You very much Keiko!
