... a 5 minute walk from the metro station, but since the sun was beating down on me, it felt like a 15 minute walk. Overall the mall wasn't anything fantastic. However, it was right in the Dubai Marina, and that was pretty cool to check out. I did not visit the Marina last time, so that was nice to check that out this time around. After the visit to the mall, I took the Metro to Dubai Internet City Station.
Once I got to the metro station, I caught a cab. I wanted to see ...
... The World by boat, which also gave us an amazing view of the Dubai skyline. The crazy thing here is that when you look in the distance, it looks like smog or haze hanging over the city. It's not.....it's the sand blowing around!
Our day ended with some dune bashing. I have not had that much fun since Laura and I did the baja chase in Las Vegas. For this one, we were in 7 seat SUV's and we went ...

Of course, now we are going ...
Sitting in the Emirates Airlines lounge at Dubai Airport waiting for flight to Newcastle. 5am. The airport is really a crossroads. Thousands of people from all over the world amongst the lights and duty free shops and hustle and bustle.
I am sitting with Cath having coffee and looking at the departure board. I love looking at them at airports. The names conjure up exotic places; adventure....Cape Town, São Paulo, Seychelles, Muscat, even Newcastle!
