Living out loud !!

This week I got the opportunity to board an Art Bus ...
Yes ...  that's right an Art Bus :)

This Art bus took us around the city , Dubai , and we had the rare opportunity
 to visit exhibitions at the independent art galleries 
and also to experience the annual art fair.

Accompanied by art guides the day-long tour was a chance 
to see art by international, regional and local artists 
while meeting like-minded people.

So today's post is all about this memorable day.
