Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

The Lunch Tree

leave a comment »

This is a picture I’ve been wanting to take for a while. ‘The Lunch Tree’ is a common sight around the city – gardeners and outdoors workers hang their lunch-bags in the trees while they work. In parks, you see little clusters of trees sporting plastic bags full of curries and soft drinks.

Money may not grow on trees but, in Dubai, lunch appears to.


It’s quite common for the workers to take a siesta under the shade of nearby parked cars, too. I didn’t used to believe cars needed rear-view cameras until a friend’s parking camera was the only thing that prevented her running over a chap fast asleep behind the back wheels of her car.
