Hi everyone,

We had a bit of a sleep in today, knackered from yesterday!! Anyway, we got up, had some breakfast, checked out Trip Advisor and decided to go to Blue Souq which is like a marketplace. There was some cool stuff in there, and even better architecture! Also it’s right on the bay area, so there were heaps of palm trees, and a great view of the cityscape! Great photo ops!

From there, we drove to WAFI, which is an Egyptian themed mall. I’d been there previously as a 13 year old and thought it’d be fun to go back. But to be honest, it was a long drive and not really worth it. It’s Ramadan right now, and we didn’t have a lot of options for food, and we’re jet lagged. So I think we were all a bit cranky and then we got stuck in traffic driving back to Sharjah. Oh well, you live and you learn. Still a great day of window shopping!

Soooo purrrty! I didn’t take any pictures at WAFI, it could’t possibly top the pics from the Blue Souq. We’ve got to get up at 5am tomorrow to drive to the airport. We’ll be flying into Iceland, I think we’ll be travelling for another 14 hours – wish us luck!!!!
