This boat looked out of place on the Khalid Lagoon by the Al Buhaira Corniche in Sharjah. It was too small to be a water taxi, and too drab to be for tourists.  As I approached it, I realized that its purpose was to pick up all the garbage floating in the lagoon.  It was full of soggy plastic bags and other detritus.  I’m glad I wasn’t close enough to smell it.
