I got the hang of the Metro in Dubai…. it was very handy, and just opposite our hotel.
They have special carriages for women and children only:
Of course the first time hubby and I were running to catch the train and went into this carriage without realizing… I was politely told by a lady that I shouldn’t be chewing gum in the train because I would get a fine, and then she said to DH – “oh, and you are not supposed to be in this carriage!” You live and learn
Walking from the Metro station to Dubai Mall was quite a hike – my legs were sore even before I got to the massive mall! Along the way I saw the bottom of the tallest building in the world:
And also the top of the tallest building in the world :
In the mall there were some cool shops….
A giant bookstore:
It just kept going on and on… never seen one this big…
A new favorite shop which I have been meaning to visit here in Arabia:
So much cooooool stuff!!!
Bad shop for a clutter-holic like me
Watched the fishies in the giant aquarium for a while…. the colorful circles are reflections of shop lights… not colorful jellyfish… There were two guys in scuba suits cleaning the “coral” with brushes….
And waited, and waited, and waited for the fountains to start up but they never did:
I found some yummy Steak and Kidney pies:
And then it was back on the metro to the hotel again….
So you see, I can do “normal” shopping too…..
