If you have been in Abu Dhabi at any time in the last month or so, you know about the Qasr al Hosn Festival. It is a 10 day festival at Qasr al-Hosn celebrating Emirati culture and traditions. We went today and it was an awesome experience. Funny enough, we didn’t walk through the actual fort itself, but we still found plenty to do.
There were demonstrations of so many traditional handiworks! Here you can see a fish trap being crafted.
There were falcons…
shark, rice, and ghee
Cameron, the pickiest eater I have ever met, really liked the shark.
There was even time for daydreaming.
traditional style souks
I was completely entranced by the contrast of the old fort of yesteryear and the new buildings of today.
