Previous Day 5 - Dubai  

Shopping - Dubai Mall
Shopping - Emerits Mall
Antiques Mall

Not much time for running on our last day - Virgnina Ann wanted to go back to the Dbuai Mall and then see the ski area in the Emirates Mall. Of course if you go to the Duabi Mall you see the Burj Khalifa streaching up into the sky.

The Burj Khalifa only took 5 years to build - remarkable.
The design of Burj Khalifa is derived from patterning systems embodied in Islamic architecture. As the tower rises from the flat desert base, there are 27 terraces in a spiralling pattern, decreasing the cross section of the tower as it reaches toward the sky and creating convenient outdoor spaces.
The next stop was the Antique Museum - which is not a museum despite its name. It is a huge import store with goods from all over the world - most from the Middle East and Africa. You could easily spend a day wandering the hallways packed with goods.

Little camels lined up for sale
Quite a lot of perfume in Dubai - and lots of pretty bottles.
Hundreds of small perfume bottles with different aromas.
A little water pipe - only 5 inches high.
Hundreds or thousands of pashminas
Little elephant riders from India
Lamps from somewhere - not local.
Tourist items in glass - including a little Burj Al Arab hotel
Near the entrance (which is a loading dock) is an elephant sculpture.

And then off to the airport for the 16 hour flight to Atlanta. We really enjoyed Dubai and hope to return soon.
