Today was to be our final day in Dubai. Ginny and Sern had some special planned for the afternoon (and night) so this morning we aimed to just chill and amble along around the Dubai Marina area.

Barely five hundred metres away is Marina Mall, a small-ish (by Dubai’s standards) mall located at the waterfront. It was here that Ginny and Sern took us for breakfast.
