Down on the docks on Deira Creek in Dubai

The guys working on the docks loading the massive wooden dhows with goods bound for Iran, across the Gulf, across to Pakistan and India and down the African coast to Somalia, Kenya and Zanzibar and even further afield, are loaded by migrant workers who mostly come from Pakistan. Many of them seem top come from a particular city beginning with an 'M' , the name of which I will try to remember (Could it be Multan?). They are mostly very busy guys, not given to sitting around and having their photos taken by a western European but every now and then they were happy to stop and pose. I have quite a few more to post in the coming days.
