Today is going to be a shorter post, since we're headed out and about shopping in about 10 minutes. We're headed to the mall of Emirates, which is supposed to be ginormous, but I don't think it's as big as the Dubai mall. Then tonight we're going to Global Village, which is where there's markets with things from all over the world. It's supposed to be kinda like heritage days in edmonton, but a million times better. Yesterday we went to the beach for a few hours right in the middle of the day, and i got a slight burn, so as you can tell the weather has been really nice. I guess there's been "arctic winds" coming in, but i sure can't tell. Every day is usually about 24 degrees with the slightest breeze so the weather has been absolutely perfect. Anyways, we went to the beach and then headed over to a mall for lunch where we used a couple coupons. The Stewarts have this book where there's a million things that are 2 for 1, so we plan on using that quite a bit over here. We also got marble slab for dessert, so yummy. Later that afternoon we went to dragon mart, which is the kilometer long mall of chinese crap....and i mean crap. But i picked up some nice pearls, and some cute wallets, so it was still a success. Then later that night, we went downtown to see the Burj Khalifa, which is the tallest building, and we also went to see the Dubai fountain (original name i know) which is the world's largest fountain, and they did a show set to music with it. As you can tell, it seems like everything over here is the world's largest..... So yesterday was another great day, with a mix of shopping and sight seeing. I'm not sure if I'll get off a blog post tomorrow morning. We're headed to fujeriah for an overnight trip. The Stewarts have friends there, and they're away to some other country for a couple months, and they're letting us stay there for the night. We're going to do some snorkeling there, as well as some sight seeing, which should be sweet, because it'll get us out of the city for a couple days. Fujeriah is only a couple hours away though, so the drive through the desert shouldn't be too bad. Anyways, that's what is new here. Hope everything is well at home. I may or may not do serious damage at the mall today with "my" credit card. Love Bonnie.
