All I can say is hot, bloody hot. Today 42 degrees and tonight a 9pm 32 degrees. Today on the Big Red Bus hop on hop of ( all day ) did I say hot , yes really hot. We visit the Dubai mall , the size of 50 football fields. Extremely big and with an ice skating rink. Passing through the old city , the gold souk and the fabric souk. A lot of bus kilometers and almost a creek cruise on a dhow ( a traditional boat thingy.) After a short rest this afternoon we take a taxi to the Burg al Arab the expensive 7 star hotel. Having secured a reservation with credit card confirmation, we are ushered to the 27 th floor for drinks in the sky lounge. Two drinks, some canapés and many photographs latter we depart. Now I can tick this one off my bucket list, hope everyone else enjoyed the experience. Back to our hotel , change out of our glad rags, venture to the restaurant strip for dinner. Unfortunately not the best meal we have ever had , and alas no alcohol. Looking forward to tomorrow off the Ferrari World in Abu dabi .
