You are thinking with that hat (pictured), this guy is from the Black Stump in Australia or from the boondocks of Texas?
This guy is from Pakistan and he is a salesman at Fujairah’s Friday Market.
If you’ve forgotten to pack your hat in the suitcase you can purchase one from the Friday Market, where you can find everything from camels through to oranges and ouds.
These hats are not made of leather but cotton and they’re not Emirati products but made in Thailand.
The going price was Dh25.00 when I stopped off at the Friday Market this week. What a bargain!
