No one enjoys the rains like Sharjah residents.
First picture shows this dude rafting in a residential complex, he went onto the road near Sharjah City Center, paddled around for some 1.5 hours or so around the neighbourhood.
Second picture: As you can see, it was so diffcult to cross from one side to the other, the foothpaths are under water and cars could barely see.
Saloon cars rarely came this side as water was as high as the door handles, some 4 Wheelers had the guts to try to pass through, and as the picture shows 3 of them broke down.
And a special mention to Robinson Crusoe who found a door sized Thermcol sheet and a stick. As a large pickup passed by the waves were so strong it overturned him, from under the water he yelled "Yakhra baitak" (May your house be destroyed)
Rain Rain go away....
come again another day....
Robinson Crusoe wants to play...

An idea that will receive praise from people with Green thumbs, I for one thought it was a well-conceived simple and sensible idea unlike the plants that call you for water.
