Strolling Through Emirates Mall in Dubai

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.

Our First Journey Into The City of Gold — Dubai

With so much to do but a whole week to get it done, we spent our first real day out and about on The Big Bus. Every big city has them. The hop on hop off tour buses which take you from one site to the next and gives you a true snapshot of what a city has to offer.

We started our tour at Emirates Mall, but with an entire city to explore, we didn’t waste any time getting on with the tour. Once we got on the main road, what I would consider a highway considering everyone was averaging 100 mph, we were greeted with a sign warning about a sand storm. But a Dubai sand storm isn’t what you see in the movies. No gusts of wind blowing grains of sand in our eyes. Actually, if it wasn’t for the sign, we probably wouldn’t have noticed there was a sand storm other than the fact that we couldn’t see the skyline in the distance. It looked more like a fog obscuring the buildings.
