Since Nduku’s sister and brother-in-law had to work, they got us tickets for the hop on hop off Big Bus tour so we can get a little taste of everything Dubai. We caught a cab to Emirates Mall where the indoor ski slope is. Normally the thrill seeker in me would want to experience it, but something about spending the entire week in a cast made me change my mind.
I have no idea what I thought I was expecting to see when we walked into Emirates Mall. I didn’t even know it was the mall with the indoor ski slope. But the last thing I would’ve guessed would be one of the first things I saw was a Starbucks. And a Shake Shack. And a Phat Farm/Baby Phat store. We literally just breezed through the mall to get to where the Big Bus picks up but in the 10 minute stroll, I felt like I was back in America.[flagallery gid=16 name=Gallery]
