Julie and I have a lot of shopping to do for our friends back home. We decide to take a limo to the City Center Mall to finish our shopping. Unfortunately, Julie ankle is bothering her from all of the walking we did the day before so I push her in a wheelchair in the mall. This is fine with the exception that some of the stores aren't quite wide enough for the wheelchair. But we manage.
We find a vendor selling Camel Bone Boxes. The boxes are smooth and handpainted with different Persian designs. They are beautiful and Julie and I buy some boxes for our family back home. I give the vendor the idea of putting his boxes on Ebay so that people all over the world can have a chance to buy them.
We also go to a local music store where we find old Iraqi music that has been given a modern twist (hip hop sort of twist). Julie purchases the CD for her son and we move on.
We find a store that sells traditional Egyptian items. Most of our time in the mall was spent in this store. They sell papyrus sheets of paper with Egyptian drawings on them, perfume oils, clothing, and other items such as pyramids, hyroglyphic items and large statues of old Egyptian Gods.
After a few hours of shopping, we head back to the hotel for dinner. There is a buffet style restaurant in the hotel and we feast on lamb, Hammour, salads and Mezzah (like empanadas).
We have one day left of training and then we return home.
