Karama

I used to love living and working in Karama in the olden days. Wandering round those tacky gift shops. Buying 'genuine' brand-name clothes for almost nothing. So it seemed like a 'must-do' for the daddy-in-law.

Alas, the place has really gone down the tubes. You could not walk 5 metres without some jerk imploring you to buy 'copy watches, Rolex, Tag Heuer, Breitling' or 'DVDs, geniune, very cheap', or 'handbags, designer handbags'. I know the guys have to make a living but after a short while I really really couldn't take it any more. It was awful.

and the Jumeirah Janes made their grand entry and paid whatever he asked, probably giving him one or two aswell in his hidden gucci room (why not?) and announced it is GREAT init? Cant get this back 'ome.
Then they went further and bought a few for chrissie presents for their friends and family.
Now we cant get nowt cos we have been here too long and know they r not bargains.
Crummy Karama, gone to the dogs.

Karama's always worth a trip just to have a look at what Dubai was like in the slightly older days, that area still has its charm, which can feel well hidden at times though.
