Shopping, shopping and more shopping at the various souks

Dubai is the world's best shopping destination. If you are a woman who likes shopping like I do, you will forget that there are seven-star properties, the world's tallest tower, manmade islands, underwater hotels and buildings that spin like a Weeble. There is so much to do in Dubai that one literally has to write down a To-Do list in order to see the best of everything. We did use a taxi since I had not dressed like the typical tourist. Like a girl trying to please a man, I wore heels and a skimpy dress when Peter asked to take me to breakfast. Little did I know that he had a sightseeing day in mind? Like the typical man, he did not advise that I needed comfortable shoes and dress; he instead complimented me on my choice of outfit.
We started with the City Center Mall which any man will tell you is not a good idea.
In the evening, Peter decided to take control; he surprised me with a dinner on the Dhow Cruise boat. The traditionally decorated wooden dhow sailed off in the evening through the creek. From a distance the Dubai skyline showed beautifully.
