Saturday we headed into Dubai to ride the recently opened Green Line of the Metro train.
We got off briefly at the Salah Al Din station.
Not sure why the predominant color in a Green Line station would be red.
This sculpture was interesting. It is a globe and coins of the countries are strategically placed.
The Salah Al Din station is right below our old apartment. I used to dream of the day when I would be able to just walk down and catch a train to work, but that didn’t exactly work out.
Our old alley we walked through many a time still looks like crap. I had hoped that with the arrival of the metro station they would clean up and pave this alley. A lot of foot traffic happens here.
The platform where one boards the train. The glass doors provide safety against accidental or intentional collisions.
Here’s the inside, in case you were curious. Mostly standing room. If you get on at the end of the line, you can count on a seat, but they fill up quickly.
The Khalid Bin Al Waleed station has some striking light fixtures and some interesting historical photographs.
Those were the days…
