Today we headed to the Mall of the Emirates, which is probably most famous for it's indoor sky run- which comes complete with chairlift! The mall also has a fantastic children's play centre called Magic Planet where we let Ryder expend some energy. Unfortunately Ryder got lost (& teary) in the maze of slides, tunnels, stairs & other fun things so I had to go in & rescue him.
That night we had a grown ups night out starting with drinks at Vu's bar which is on the 51st floor of Emirates Towers. From there we headed to a fantastic Indian restaurant called Asha's for a very yummy dinner & a great catch up with our 2 very special ex-pat friends.
