It Felt Differently Today

For anyone living in the UAE 🇦🇪, it’s a familiar sight, especially in areas like Al Ain. However, it felt different today…

Having stepped out of the car to take a close up, I noticed his tied feet in the tight space and my mind started pondering : this is the bedouin’s best friend, his oldest way of transport, and he is now being carried away on a modern mode of transport…The symbolism in this situation wasn’t old versus new only… The look 👀 in his eyes could be that of a post-retirement workaholic pragmatically trying to stay aloof after acquiring “senior citizenship status” 🤷🏻‍♀️…

Yes, somehow it felt differently today…
