photo: looking out

Looking out into the courtyard of the Orient Cafe and Guesthouse in Bastakiya in Dubai. They have some really great tiramisu and also serve Starbucks coffees and drinks! There are just five or six tables in this tiny courtyard so it fills up pretty quickly.



More photos of the area here, and a map here.

Wow, Shalini ... where in Dubai is this? I'd love to go :)

Sharmishtha,
This is the Orient Cafe and Guesthouse in the Bastakiya arts quarter in Bur Dubai, just a few minutes from the Dubai Museum. See this link here: http://up.flickr.com/places/United%20Arab%20Emirates/Dubai/Dubai/Bastakia/ for the map, and this link for more of my shots in Bastakiya: http://up.flickr.com/photos/ganobristol/tags/bastakiya/

It's a great place to visit in the winter, especially on Saturdays when there is a souk with lots of traditional arts and craft on display. They also have quite a bit for kids too.
