A postcard from Sjarjah | الشارقة‎ ,UAE

Sharjah is one of the emirates of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The settlement of Sharjah dates back some 6,000 years when it is believed to have been called Sarcoa. The population was small and people relied on trade and sea faring in addition to, farming, hunting, fishing and pearling. Many of the early settlements were based around the ‘falaj’, a man made underground water course.
