Starbucks in Arabic, notice the local in a ballcap on his Mac
The only large mall in Dubai that we had yet to explore was Eisaâ€™s favorite, Wafi Mall. Since he had returned to Dubai to meet with some business associates and spend the day with us, we walked around Wafi (Kyle actually â€śHeeledâ€ť like a pro) and ate a light Italian lunch. Upon leaving the mall, Sean suggested a drive around town before sunset and we made it to Jumeirah Beach just in time to watch the sun set into the Persian Gulf beside the magnificent Burj Al Arab. The beach offered very colorful shells of all sizes, but only a few people; I was really surprised and thought to myself that if the same scene were in Puerto Vallarta, this beach would be filled with people enjoying the picturesque evening as we have often experienced on The Malecon at sunset. To enjoy our last evening in Dubai, we returned to the Jumeirah Beach Mall (the place we had dinner on our first night in the city) to have tea and strawberry drinks under the night sky. As expected, Mianna fell asleep on the lounging chair before her strawberry juice arrived, so we decided to return to the hotel and get a good nightâ€™s rest for our return to Abu Dhabi tomorrow.
