Yes.) I would suggest that we explore why it is called Cat in Boots here, but that is a road that we perhaps do not want to travel down for too long.
bushiyya? Mine does.
Festival City also had a random acrobat show going on last time we were there. Here's the deal. I don't know if I've complained about it before on this blog, but the stores here never have sales. Ever. But it turns out they do have sales, exactly once a year: during the end of June and the entire month of July. It's not exactly an incentive to stay in the UAE for the summer (well, maybe it is), but it is a bonus for those of us who hang around. If you ever move to Dubai, try to arrive in July so you can buy all your furniture at fabulous "Dubai Summer Surprises" (that's what the emirate-wide sale festival is called) prices.
Anyway, as part of DSS, the malls (which serve as community centers in a way) also have lots of free shows and activities going on. The acrobat show was one of those. Each week there is something new. I think it's nice.
Also today, I saw my first car accident in the UAE happen right before my eyes. It was in a traffic circle - I know, big surprise, right? A car in an outer lane did not exit, while a car in an inner lane did. They collided. It wasn't high-speed so it wasn't a horrific accident, but it was unnerving to witness. Good thing I just drove on my merry way - I've heard that you are not supposed to stop when you've witnessed a traffic accident because you can end up being cited. For what, I have no idea, but I already have a healthy fear of the shurta (police) so I'm not keen on finding out first-hand.
