I love waking up naturally to sunlight and blue skies. The sun starts shining in through our bedroom windows pretty early, luckily though my mom was here and hung some curtains a few weeks ago but they still let just the right amount of light through (except on mornings after late party nights, but I have to buy that thing you put in front of your eyes, what’s-it-called?).
So I’m off to Dubai Mall in half an hour. Dubai Mall is the biggest one here, they have everything! I could easily bring my sleeping bag and camp out for a week. It takes a while to find your way around though, it’s very easy to not find your way back to the place you were supposed to meet someone (happens to my husband all the time 😉 ..)
There’s a HUGE aquarium and underwater zoo, an ice skating rink, a waterfall, fountain show, a ridiculously large candy shop and my favorite bookstore, Kinokuniya that’s the size of a big library. Among so many other things. And not to forget – Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world) is just outside. So you can definitely book a whole day for Dubai Mall if you’re visiting.
