Fujairah is a Load of Bull

Boston’s The Big Picture has run a series of wonderful photographs of the UAE.

Fujairah Image
Here is the one selected that sums up what is quintessential about Fujairah. And why should this image of bull butting sum up the eastern emirate? Because Fujairah is natural, energetic, rough, rugged, dusty, unpredictable and there’s always a load of waste lying around.

There is little text on The Big Picture for this site gives ‘the story in pictures’.

A short caption for this the 16th of 28 pictures says: Bulls push each other during a traditional bullfight in the Gulf emirate of Fujairah on November 7, 2008. (KARIM SAHIB/AFP/Getty Images)

Have a look at the marvelous photos at this link: Dubai and the UAE, The Big Picture, 19 November 2008.
