Flag of United Arab Emirates  , Dubayy,
Sunday, May 1, 2011

Headed out to the Mall of the Emirates via the Metro this morning.  Checked out the ski slope in the mall and a few shops.  Baz found some speakers he wants to buy so heading out again tomorrow.  Took the Metro to Union Station at Deira and wandered along the wharf area to the dhow stations.  Caught a dhow across Dubai creek and shopped a little before catching a dhow back again and headed to a very small cafe for lunch. 

Met a lady from Byron Bay travelling on her own for about 6 months.  Bought a few items - finally got something at the right price.  Hard hagglers these Arabs and Indians.  Caught the bus back to our area and looked for Baz's speakers - didn't find them but found a little mouse for my notebook - 29drns - or about $5.  

Headed back to the hotel for a pool break.  Still very hazy out so photos of long shots not too good.

Heading to Cairo tomorrow - into thunderstorms.

Glad you are getting your bearings. Sounds hot! Make sure you drink lots of water. Learning the language? You could always make it up. Hope the recent events won't affect your travels. Take care.
