A very different place. The landscape looks like desert but this area gets monsoon rains and so the land can be watered and is very fertile. Lots of coconut palms, banana trees, papaya and of course frankincense trees which was the original trading product here.

We stopped in Purely Gold, a jewelry store, to meet Hector's niece who worked there. Being Filipino, she had a great name: Dimple. She seemed thrilled that we had looked her up and her boss was kind enough to take our picture. 20% of the population in the UAE is Filipino because they ...
