Coffeepot Roundabout in Fujairah but Don't Forget the Cups

The coffeepot (dallah) roundabout is one of the most distinctive landmarks in Fujairah but unfortunately by such a name the coffee cups (finjaan) are usually overlooked.

The cups at the Fujairah roundabout are nicely crafted, Arabic in style (without the handles) and they are as essential to the coffee ritual in Arabia as the pot.

There are seven cups at the Faseel roundabout, perhaps depicting the hope of fulsome hospitality in each of the emirates of the UAE.
