Day 212 Ras al Khaimah

Uuuuh, such a relaxing place and such wonderful hosts ! Got up late and enjoyed the views from Kasia & Dareks apparent -one side to the sea, the other side to the mangrove in the creek of RAK. I had a stroll through the old town and visited the city museum. RAK is a much more down-to-earth place than Dubai. Even though there are some skyscrapers, you can still find some traditional Emirati life here. You have much better chances to actually meet Emiratis here -after all Emiratis make up less than 20% of the population of the UAE ! Some parts of the old town reminded me a lot of the Omani coast. The museum was very nice -not so much because of the exhibits but because of the building, a traditional house set around a courtyard. The rest of the day I just relaxed, chatted with my hosts, played guitar and was played with by the cats.
