Yasalam translates to the English equivalent of “Awesome,” which describes best the current beat and spirit of Abu Dhabi. Preceding the Formula 1 race this weekend, the city has brought in multicultural music acts heating up the crowds frequenting the gardens and sidewalks along the gorgeous corniche. But even without the Formula 1 race, Abu Dhabi is a pretty yasalam. Whether you bargain with the vendors at the fruit and vegetable market, feel sorry for the men who push fruit and vegetable loaded wheel barrels, get almost blinded by the masses of yellow gold gleaming from lit up windows in the Gold Souk, indulge in scrumptious Arabic sweets and mezzah, admire mosaic artworks in the many pedestrian underpasses or chill under fancy beach umbrellas on powder white sand beaches. Life in Abu Dhabi is just yasalam.
