My Sunday Photo Week 4 Dubai Industrial City

This is the industrial part of Dubai, a snap taken with my iPhone this morning on the train.

The area is broken up into 6 zones. Food and Beverage, Transport Equipment and Parts, Machinery and Equipment, Mineral Products, Base Metal and Chemicals. Hubby works in the chemical industry within food and beverage so all nicely located for him in Jebel Ali.

It's the less exciting part of Dubai but employs 500,000 people and is part of what makes this place tick.
