Al Ain, UAE

Al Ain is also known as Garden City - it is surrounded by seven oasis fed by natural springs. There is a testimony to numerous prehistoric cultures, notably from the Bronze Age and the Iron Age; for example circular stone tombs (ca 2500 B.C.), wells and a wide range of adobe constructions.  Hili moreover features one of the oldest examples of the sophisticated aflaj irrigation system which dates back to the Iron Age.
These are all descriptions of the UAE's only Unesco site - but upon closer research I have concluded that these postcards couldnt qualify for my collection...nevertheless its great to have them, thanks Ayn :))
