Day 11 - Pool and Mall

Now we are in Dubai we can in earnest start to relax more and more. This morning was spent feasting on the wonderful breakfast buffet in the hotel followed by a nice three hour rest by the pool. Again temperatures are high 30s. It's too warm to sit in the sun, so we remained under the umbrella and took regular dips in the chilled pool water to keep cool.

The view from our room - the desert
In the late afternoon we took the metro over to the Mall of the Emirates - the second largest mall in the area. This is the mall made famous for having a ski slope.

Surprisingly there are no Abercrombie brands here in Dubai, so we where stunned to see a Hollister is opening here later this year. 

A new Hollister Store will open in Mall of the Emirates later this year
We stayed in later that evening (early morning) having a rest and catching up on some XFactor and TV from home.
