So today's photo was taken one hour ago at the food court at Terminal 3 in Dubai Intersnational Airport, It was only one hour flight from Bahrain to Dubai but I am still having a long hour to go to Indonesia as the reason why I am spending my time at the Duty Free area now because my next connecting flight to Singapore will be in another 4 hours. While having some snacks at the food court, I saw there is an indoor tropical garden and I want to show everybody how pretty the garden is. There are a mini fountain, pine trees, some tropical plants and even a little wadhi or river flowing down to the end of the garden.

In some countries and regions such as Iran, Iraq, pakistan, Lebanon, Bahrain, Trinidad and Tobago and Jamica, the commemoration of Ashura has become a national holiday and most ethnic and religious communities participate in it.
The further interesting about this event, it also existing in my home country Indonesia, exactly celebrated in Pariaman, the West Coast of West Sumatra Province. Though it is originally a Shia festival but in Pariaman is held by the Sunnis, please go to this article about Tabuik (local manifestation of Muharram by Wiki to further reading about the history of Tabuik celebration on Ashura.
In Bahrain, the Ashura procession is held in many areas such as in Manama (the capital city), Sanabis, Jidhafs, Budaiya, Ali and Buri and other areas as well. Unfortunately, I am always at work during this festival and luckily a friend give some photos taken last year for Sanabis DP. After a lot of consideration, I decide not to post them here today due to the nature of the content but I will give you a link here. Sara from Mashhad DP Iran is also posting about Ashura and will give you a complete explanation about how Ashura celebrated in Iran. Please go here to see her DP as she also has tons of beautiful photos.
So, further to keep Sanabis DP with photo, I am posting the photo shown at Wikipedia;

Just another shot taken at the winter camp as today's photo at Sanabis DP. These outdoor settee set is very important of the winter camp experience. As what I heard, read and informed by booklet, brochures and direct info from Bahrainis friends; winter camp is always full of fun and entertainment. On these very settee, they camper will be spending evening with family member or peers by singing, playing games and having meal. It is winter school holiday anyway and winter camp is the perfect choice on spending quality time with family.

Lets go inside, its cold out here!!!!!
Most the inside interior of these winter camps are accesorized in a very rich and elaborately beautiful by the owner. You could see the typical Middle Eastern fabric pattern; red and black fabric used to decorate the inner wall and most furnitures and even the carpet would be predominantly red.
