I met up with my old friend,Amitabh Sharma and he took me home for a lovely dinner. But on the way, we stopped at the Dubai Mall to check it out, not for shopping but to take pics. Here’s the result.
The Dubai Mall is a giant mall. We ended up jumping on an electric cart which buzzed us up and down the corridors, must have been more than a mile in length. We started in the middle, this is the Indian souk. With the elephant and a houdah on top. A serious one. Poor elephant.
Hmm, never heard of him. Checked out Wikipedia and here’s the entry. Seems like he tried to fly like a bird putting on vulture feathers.
Back to the Egyptian Gallery.
More views of the Egyptian Court.
And jarringly, in the middle of the Ibn Battuta area, you have a hello kitty store. Irony. Ibn Battuta would have puked. Here is the slideshow with more photographs.
