Deira is located alongside Dubai Creek, historically known as one of the trading ports in Persian Gulf. As I walked along the streets in Naif, Al Khaleej, Al Sabkha, and Al Buteen, I observed many interesting characters minding their own business in this place they call home. When approached, they were jovial and friendly, always asked me where I come from and being myself, I don’t mind being chatty and managed a few conversations with them. As we talked, I could see in their eyes, although they looked content and happy with their life in Deira, deep inside I know how much they missed their home country.
