In The Pale Light This haystack yard is a place in the UAE that you can not imagine exists so close to a modern and futuristic city such as Dubai. Going there is like a time travel journey. People that I met there are mostly from Pakistan, very hard workers, but humble and very welcoming. They sort, roll and stack the hay. Once it is ready, they send it all across the local farms as food for camels, goats, cows and other domestic animals. During the summer months, working outside at the middle of the desert will be a huge challenge, even for these men.
