Oh what an experience! Clare and I ventured onto the metro yesterday. I had no idea how to do it…it was kind of intimidating. There were so many people hustling about at the Internet City metro stop! I found a self ticketing machine, couldn’t figure out how to make it accept my credit card – luckily had just enough cash to cover the fares- and purchased us 2 all day passes. They were only AED 14 (about $3.50) a piece, but in the future it will be less because I just read that children under 5 Ride free. D’oh!
Our destination was Mall of the Emirates. We’d already experienced Dubai Mall – this mall was the obvious next choice! It has a HUGE (for Dubai) grocery store – Carrefour, a children’s play zone with rides (total blast!), tons of restaurants and stores obvi, and Ski Dubai. Clare and I stood there watching the skiers, tubers and other winter sports enthusiasts that I’m not sure what that we’re doing for a long time. It was mesmerizing! I forgot to take my camera or phone so here is a stock photo from dubai guide:
We still haven’t heard definitively if we got the apartment or not. Our shipping container of belongings isn’t set to arrive in Dubai until 12/20, so either way we will be in this hotel for awhile. Well it’s Friday morning here (start of the weekend) so we are off to do more exploring. Have a great weekend everyone!
