Al Ain has always been an upmarket tourist resort in UAE and is a gifted land of abundance. On both sides I could see the desert vastness spread all around creating variegated geometrical patterns on the sands. The breathtaking beauty of almost nothingness is unique, ethereal and tranquil. As we entered the so called 'Garden City', part of the emirate of Abu Dhabi, UAE's most fertile areas, a literal oasis. I could feel a rush of adrenaline as we ascended Jebel Hafeet mountain from where we could see the verdant landscape as the driver took the steep turns.
