Treasures of Satwa

So off we went to Satwa again this weekend, getting another glimpse of expats wallowing in the luxury that Dubai provides.


I always make a point of wandering into the perfumes & herbs shops, they're fantastic Alladins caves full of treasure - open sacks of all kinds of strange raw materials, pots & jars of mysterious things, wonderful smells...

Last week, as I reported, I came across some snake oil. Nothing remarkable in that I discovered this week. There's a huge range of the stuff and according to some of the packets it's just the thing to slap on your hair.

I also discovered a new, new to me at least, and odd-sounding product...but just read what it does, it's fabulous stuff. I'll let you know if it works...
But then it really started to get mysterious. Hip Up and Buttock Gel? What's that all about?
And you're really going to have to help me out with this one...


"Bride Herbs. Sorry."
Any ideas?

Hey...Satwa has its own old town charm which unfortunately will give way to another few talll towers in a few months

I hope to make it to Satwa ASAP and capture most of it on camera before some it gets razed down
