I can't wait until I have some time to Google your entire photo caption. What's Eid al Adha? Where is Jebel Hafeet Mountain? Heck, where is Al Ain? I thought I had a good handle on geography, but I'm feeling like an "estoopit american" right now. haha

I love this blog, such a fanastic learning opportunity! God bless the internet, it might just save humanity yet. :o)

Al Ain is a 90 minutes drive into the desert from Abu Dhabi. Jebel Hafeet is the tallest mountain in the UAE and as for Eid al Adha, checkout http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eid_al-Adha. It answers most of your questions :)

We have the Eid al-Adha celebration in Malaysia too. But it is a more solemn celebration. You will never see any dancing taking place.

I like this shot where you captured the man in suit who has a facial expression that shows he was enjoying the dance very much!

You've captured both emotion and energy in this photo, great job. Thanks for visiting my dp, we are expecting more snow!
