I've almost forgot how it feels to ride in an Abra. Before when RTA buses are still limited I was used to take this wooden boat from Burdubai to Deira and vice versa.
An abra is actually a traditional boat used to transport people across Dubai Creek which has a capacity of 20 passengers and it is driven by an operator from a cockpit stepped in the center of the hull.
Last week i had this experience of taking the abra from Bur Dubai to Deira and i felt so great that after a year i was able to ride on this boat, smell the creek and feel the winter breeze while crossing the creek.
I wish next time i will be able to take my sister who haven't tried the abra yet and we'll rent it for 30 minutes maybe...
