Uganda and stops between

12/30/2016: After the nightmare metro ride from the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa last night, it was time to take Barbara shopping. We headed over to the various Souks in Deira and had a nice meal at a waterfront restaurant. Quite the menu at most Dubai restaurants!

We hopped on a ferry going toward the Burj Al Arab, but the tickets were tight, and we only made it halfway. After a lot of wandering around, we finally found the beach on Jumeirah. Lot's of crazy shopping malls all around Dubai.
