Dhow Laborer

_BCY0018-Edit

Dubai Creek – Dubai, United Arab Emirates

You see these workers on the dhows every day loading everything from vegetables and fruit, clothes, vehicle spares, cars, to electrical equipment, into the boats.  They toil in the sun or in pitch-black, cramped conditions below-deck.  And then make their way up and down Dubai Creek, and once the boat is full, it’s off — loading and unloading in several countries around the Middle East before it reaches its destination in Iran, East Africa, Pakistan or India.
