I’ve been on a couple of runs to pick up the niece from school but haven’t had any time to wander around downtown Abu Dhabi, her school is in the middle of the city. We rectified that on the weekend. AD Sista is getting dress made so we went in to town and bought some material and visited the tailor that had been highly recommended. As the shop was shut when we arrived we went to the World Trade Centre Abu Dhabi and had a walk around inside there. Shops one end, the souk the other. Its an interesting building inside, lots of wood screens, quite a modern interpretation of a souk. I believe the original was destroyed in a fire (but don’t quote me on that) I thought there was a lot of similarity in the lighting being sold in the souks of Marrakesh and Abu Dhabi – the same style of lighting for sale but more colourful here.
A play in the park, a horse ride (the niece not me) and dinner followed.
