Mirror Reflections – United Arab Emirates & Russia


Life in United Arab Emirates

Last week the Emirates celebrated their 42nd National Day! Like last year the whole country went all out – decorations, fireworks, and the biggest UAE flags you’ve ever seen! The best part is all the people that go crazy decorating their car with national day things. The Rands posted a bit about National Day here and it has some great pictures of those cars. My favorite part about this time of year is that in Al Ain they decorate all the round-abouts with huge light displays and town center is all lit up. One evening Scott and I went around our town of Al Ain to try and capture these light displays for you . . .

Life in Russia

Real Russia Video Blog has been launched in 2012 by “Sergey x 2″ as they are called – Sergey Baklykov and Sergey Pichugin – the two enterprising young men from the city of Ufa, the capital of Russia’s autonomous Republic of Bashkortostan.

Feeling tremendous dissatisfaction with the misunderstanding and misrepresentation of Russia in the West, they decided to start a Youtube channel entitled REAL RUSSIA, in which they endeavored to document the true Russian life as is, without any propaganda, embellishments or editing.
