After a short rest Ginny and
Sern took us to Al Wasl Road where Boxpark
is situated. Taken from their website
long and proud on Al Wasl Road, a riot of green, yellow, orange blue and grey,
Boxpark is a mall unlike no other. It doesn’t take over its environment. It’s a
part of it. It’s a part of the very urban soul of the city.
The idea for Boxpark originated
from the UK and is meant to be a food and retail park made out of refitted
shipping containers. It was founded by Roger Wade who described it as the
"world's first pop-up mall".

We marveled at the entire
construction of the place, and thought that refitted shipping containers never
looked so elegant and funky.

Brendan was fascinated with his first sight of sunset in the Middle East, and took some photos.

We had dinner at Markette, a
cozy place with a welcoming ambience and fresh off-the-kitchen comfort food.

The food was amazing, the
ambiance incredible and the service top-notched so we were surprised to
discover later that Markette along Al Wasl Road was permanently closed
