Exploring the Impressive Louvre Abu Dhabi, UAE

Architect Jean Nouvel designed the impressive and beautiful Louvre Abu Dhabi

Until recently I thought of Abu Dhabi as a city one connects through when flights through Dubai aren’t available. But that view was challenged during my latest visit to the UAE.

Friday Night at Barakhambi Temple in Rajasthan, India

Locals gather for chanting and worship in the evenings at Barakhambi Temple

At the suggestion of the staff at the incredible Amanbagh, I paid a visit to Barakhambi Temple  after sundown, when the the local Hindus gathered to clang chimes and worship.
