I know that a lot of people are worried about the recent activities in the Middle East. So far things in Dubai seem to be normal everyday activities. I only hear about what is going on outside the UAE thru my USAToday website and info that Carol shares with me from state-side. I will do my best to keep everyone updated as best I can.
I bought a mobile internet connection so that I can email or text from anywhere in the City, so I should be able to do a better job of keeping everyone up to speed.
I was at the Mall of the Emirates today getting my mobile internet connector. I noticed a couple of interesting things while walking thru the Mall. One we have a new IHOP in the Food Court area. It was packed on Saturday morning….just like the USA. I also noticed a family pushing their elaborate stroller thru the Mall. They pulled over to the side of the aisle-way to fix their flat tire. Yes, the Dad had an air-pump out to pump up the back tire. That baby must have a pretty smooth ride with air-filled tires………..
I stopped by the Shake Shack for lunch and while I am taking my meal back to my table I noticed a teenaged girl painting her toenails at the table with Mom and Dad. I realize that most people in Dubai wear sandals and they like their toes to look nice, but I am not sure if I have ever seen that sort of thing in the USA. Learn something new everyday.
