I’m sorry but I think I will just have to save the rest of my Nepal trip for another day – today I’m going to catch you all up with what we’ve been doing with my mother and brother. The last two days we have been in Dubai. We started off the journey from Al Ain to Dubai with a detour through the desert:
By now it was getting close to sunset so we decided to head to the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and go to its 360 degree bar.
The Global Village has markets, shops, and food stands from all around the world. It is open until midnight and we stayed out right until it closed! But we didn’t leave before mom got some ice cream – little did she know that she was getting the famous Turkish ice cream. The man who serves the ice cream does all kinds of tricks and plays all kinds of jokes on the buyer – like pretending to drop the ice cream, pulling it away from you, giving you an empty cone, etc. It’s really funny.
Feeling very full we thought an afternoon on the beach would be the perfect remedy!
After the beach we decided to take a drive on the famous Palm islands! The villas and hotels were gorgeous.
We then drove along the east side of the Palm Islands and got some great views of the city.
We then spent a couple hours inside the Dubai Mall and grabbed some dinner:
We again stayed until midnight when Global Village closes and did not get home until around 1:30 in the morning. Right now everyone is quietly sleeping after this eventful trip to Dubai – I think I will join them and get some shut eye myself! Goodnight!
