Photowalk Corniche Abu Dhabi

The weather after the Etihad Run was perfect for a walk, so I decided to stroll home and kept my camera busy.

The first time my friends heard I was moving to Abu Dhabi, they were all in shock.

“Abu Dhabi? Where is that?”

“What’s your mode of transportation, camels?

“Do you have to be dressed fully covered?”

Truth be told, Abu Dhabi is generally not a well-known country nor a superior choice of destination for Asians. Only in the past decade did we really learn more about this pearl-trading-turned-oil-producing country.

Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanisation, coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi to a larger and advanced metropolis. -Wikipedia

These photos are just a part of a very long stretch of Abu Dhabi Corniche.

The Corniche Road spreads across an impressive eight kilometres of manicured waterfront that includes children’s play areas, separate cycle and pedestrian pathways, cafés and restaurants, and the Corniche Beach. – http://visitabudhabi.ae

The park near our house has a funny name: FORMAL PARK (But why?).

Kiddie entertainment is everywhere before the summer heat unleashes it’s full power.

The government of Abu Dhabi has invested so much in developing the infrastructure, architecture and landscape of the city. I just wish that someday a true sense of community would prosper in this land.

If we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values – that all reality hinges on moral foundations and that all reality has spiritual control. –Martin Luther King, Jr.
