Desert tourism

Fayrouz City

The sign reminds me of the one we know to be in Hollywood, but the feel is not quite the same. The green grass and bushes indicate that the place is taken care of, but you are not sure until you would go in.

Driving by deserted desert

What strikes me on the view is the neglect. A lot of new hotels to be built, but never finished, road signs rotting away. 

This place makes me wonder how we conduct tourism. Building little paradises and palaces in the middle of the desert, that are far from sustainable.

Only one thing has to go wrong and the mirage is shattered. 

I hope to have given some poetry to these images.
