Jean and I didn't hurry to get out of bed this morning. After we finally did, we taxied to the Dubai Mall, where there is a large aquarium (saw a grey nurse shark), an ice skating rink, and which Jean thinks looks like Westfield Bondi on steroids. We saw the Dubai Fountain in action, which I've put on FB, have had an avocado milkshake, and have now returned to the hotel in preparation for tonight. We are going on a four-wheel drive desert safari and dinner in a desert oasis.
The taxi driver said it was 41 degrees. It is very hot. You could not walk a couple of streets here.
