Back to Dubai. Landy flew in, as did Kiera and Marcos, and we all spent the afternoon at the beach - which was surprisingly nice - really, really nice sand and water with a view of the Burj Al Arab 7 star hotel. In the evening we drove to an Iftar dinner inside a tent by the marina. Iftar is the name of the feast people have at night during Ramadan, and tonight was actually the last night of Ramadan, so it was nice to do something special. After dinner Kiera and Marcos both flew out of Dubai - Kiera to Bangladesh, and Marcos is making his way back to Argentina, so we won't see him again until the wedding!

Tomorrow I'm going to take Landy to the shopping mall with skiing inside. I think a shopping mall is as much a part of the Dubai culture as deserts are. It's fun to see all the people in their national dress sitting around in starbucks over coffee, or shopping for mini skirts.
