Flower Clock in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

From series “Enchanting Flower Clocks Built by Humans”
There is the incredibly beautiful and unique floral clock in Abu Dhabi. This Arab city is a sister town of Geneva. Gardeners of this Swiss city has given a symbolic and unusual present. The set of flowers is located near the Great Mosque and the Sheraton Hotel. This floral clock differs dramatically from those that can be seen in other cities around the world.

The dial with hands is located on a small hill that is framed by amazing landscape ornaments of stone and an artificial pond with fountains. The dial is just the same as that of the clock in Geneva, but the mechanism is very different from the Swiss one. It was formed taking into account local climatic conditions. Most of the year, the temperature in Abu Dhabi is above 40 degrees Celsius. The artificial pond with fountains set around the clock is designed to increase the humidity.

All of the flowers and plants decorating the flower beds are also selected taking into account the harsh climate. Since its opening, the flower clock in Abu Dhabi is a popular tourist attraction. It is a stop for special bus tours. Some travelers get a taxi to watch the landmark. Even in the hot weather, the pleasant coolness embraces the clock. Guests of the city will have an opportunity to get on the rocks near the pond and watch the fountains, as well as to make photos of one of the most unusual live attractions of the country.

Meat soups remain the most popular first courses. As a rule, such ingredients as potatoes, rice, beans and capers are typical for local first courses. Visitors of the national cuisine restaurants usually buy stew as the second course dish. Garnishes can be very original. Thus, lamb is usually served with boiled rice and raisins. Chicken is traditionally stuffed with corn porridge; poultry meat is often added to pilaf, which is known as one of the most popular oriental dishes. Various milk products are also very popular in the local cuisine, but it will be really hard to find vegetable salads which are so familiar to Europeans. The most common way to cook vegetables here is to stew them.

We should also not to forget to pay attention to desserts. Sweet tooth travellers will simply have to try local pudding Umm Ali, which is made from milk, nuts and dried fruits.
