Desert Lakes - UAE Al Ain


This is one of our trips for this weekend. , we went to a place here in Al Ain which is common for some birds to be seen over there, The place does not have a name yet it is temporary but we called it the Treatment Plant Lake.

Lots of water on the desert and making the view is so wonderful , specially with the sand dunes , Jabel Hafit in the back and the plantation.

we went there to see a kind of birds which they is thousands of them , just coming for drinking water, I was hoping to see some big birds like Heron etc etc ..but the dont come over there as there is no fish on the water like Zakher pool.

Thanks for those who helped me in the information and thanks for the ENHG for taking us to this place.

Enjoy the pictures :)

Breast Cancer event ( Al towaya Park , Al Ain City)

Greetings.. (Quoted from the national newspaper)

With one week remaining in Breast Cancer Awareness month, events were held across the country yesterday to highlight the need for early detection. Hundreds of people wearing pink T-shirts and ribbons turned out at Al Tuwaya Public Park in Al Ain for a run/walk organised by the Sports and Cultural Club as part of a campaign by Tawam Hospital and John Hopkins Medicine.
Among those taking part were women who had suffered breast cancer and their relatives, including husbands, sisters, daughters and sons. Afterwards, participants were asked to write their thoughts and comments on a giant ribbon.
Breast cancer is the second most deadly cancer in the UAE, after lung cancer, and the most common in women. It accounts for 28 % of all female deaths. 44 % of cases are fatal, according to Health Authority Abu Dhabi. Many women are diagnosed only in the late stages of the disease.

This is one of the activity for letting the children enjoying drawings :)
