ADVENTURES IN DUBAI:
YOUR FAVOURITE NUMBER ONE BLOG
BRITISH DESIGNER LIVING IN DUBAI TELLS (NEARLY) ALL
Tuesday, June 20, 2006
Well thank you fans for a pathetic response to my quizette! To put you out of your misery, it's a children's playground in Valencia. The figure is Gulliver with his hat and sword. There's a marvellous park in Valencia which is basically in a wadi. As in, there used to be a river, the Turia, that wiggled its way around the historic town centre. But after major flooding in the 50s, the river was diverted and the riverbed was turned into a long and winding park. Gorgeous it is. Gulliver's Playground is in there, and just to the right is the City of Science and Technology, featuring some wacky architecture that would not be amiss in Dubai.
